    upgrade from 9i to 10gr2 clob data

    I have a table with 4 clob records (application data and not dictionary). It apperas as "Lossy Conversion" Exception Type. How do I handle this before i upgrade?

    Thanks in advance,

    al32utf8 is not a binary superset of WE8ISO8859P1; check Metalink Note #260192.1

    WE8MSWIN1252 is a binary superset of WE8ISO8859P1. So I need to first convert clob data to WE8MSWIN1252. Metalink Note #260192.1 does suggest the same. If this is right, could you please let me know the steps involved to convert from

    WE8ISO8859P1 to WE8MSWIN1252 and then to al32utf8? Should I do fix the Lossy first? I still have to handle dictionary "convertible data" (sys.source$, sys.metastylesheet and sys.external_tab$).

    Thanks,
    vpons
