We have a database (Oracle 188.8.131.52) on SunSolaris now with AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1 character set.
Now, we are planning to convert it to UNICODE character set.
Is it possible to convert a AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1 database to a UNICODE character set database???
If yes, could we use the ALTER DATABASE command
to do the database conversion?
What is the commonly used UNICODE type (is it UTF8) ?
If I change it to any of the UNICODE types, then what other changes do I have to make.....any increase in the field lengths, etc...
Thanks in advance!
