Happy New Year first of all!
I bumped into a problem after installing Oracle8.1.6i on my machine - everything looks fine, but when I connect to my db with SQL*Plus, and execute a command, all system and error messages appear as rubbish. I seems like a problme with the charset or font configuration but I have no idea how to solve it. My system is Win NT 4.0/ English(US) Default.
Thank you very much for your messages.
what kind of error message?
Well, all system and error messages appear as rubbish - for example, I enter SLECT * FROM table1;
Error message that is returned by database is unreadable -
asdkfjklasd@$%$%%34 %!@$%1234 or smth like that. I guess it is a charset problem, but how to solve it ?
Please, give me some hints.
CHECK NLS_LANG in REGSITRY
Go to DOS command prompt and log in to svrmgr with connect internal and type 'show parameter nls' and see what NLS_PARM options you have choosen for your database...
Check NLS_LANG parameter in the registry under /HKEY_LOCALMACHINE/SOFTWARE/ORACLE. It should be 'AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1'
Do you mean system registry or oracle properties?
I've looked for NLS settings using regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> ControlSet...
but i couldn't figure out what registry entry to change.
we mean windows registry and under the entry sreddy suggested, if there isnt one add it manually.
Thank you very much, I will try your suggestions.
You suggestion is perfect, it solved the problem.
Have a nice holiday!
