    Hello,

    What is the fast way to find the character set of a database (suppose that you lost the script used to create the db) ?

    Thanks

    v$parameter will not tell u character set or national character set.

    Actually three ways:

    As said before in thread, query sys.props$

    2) alter database backup controlfile to trace (and open the trace file)

    3) query v$nls_parameters

    There is a public view provided for this:

    SELECT * FROM nls_database_parameters WHERE parameter = 'NLS_CHARACTERSET';
