    NLS _LANG in AIX

    Dabs,

    We are facing a problem with the export/import client character set.
    How can I find out what the default setting for the NLS_LANG
    In AIX 4/5?

    When I used: echo $NLS_LANG,
    All of our Unix boxes return blank.
    If without setting this, the AIX will give any default character set?
    e.g. use US7ASCII or UTF8?

    Thanks,

    Lily

    there is no default character sets, when creating the database what you are setting to would be the character set. When you use ODCA you will see WE8MSWIN1252(db chracter set), AL16UTF16(national c. set) (I hope others too see the same). you can check what is been set with NLS_DATABASE_PARAMETERS.

    what exp/imp problem are you facing with NLS?
