changing character set!!
Export done in EL8MSWIN1253 character set and AL16UTF16 NCHAR character set
server uses EL8ISO8859P7 character set (possible charset conversion)
how could i change characetr set and meet server's environmental variables???would that affect the database??
Changing the Database Character Set of an Existing Database
Database character set migration has two stages:
1. Data scanning -- can identify number of schema objects where the column widths need to be expanded and the extent of the data that does not exist in the target character repertoire (range). This information helps to determine the best approach for converting the database character set.
2. Data conversion -- ensure if the database does not contain any of the inconsistencies described in "Character Set Conversion Issues"

Are you really suggesting to change Database character set to solve an export issue?
