Change character set
We are going to change our database character set from WE8ISO8859P1 to AL32UTF8. We know that this could cause problems related to performance or disk space because we will change from a single-byte to a multibyte encoding.
We have an Oracle 10g database.
Is there any other restriction or problem? For example: using Oracle Text or other application?
Are you aware that you cannot "change" your database character set from WE8ISO8859P1 to AL32UTF8?
