Ascii character with code 193 returned as A in the grid


#1

Hello:

I am using Toad 12.7. When I run this query:

select ‘Á’ as fld from dual

The grid displays A and not the character with the ASCII code 193.

Furthermore, if I export the data to text file I get A as well

Is there a way to tell Toad to return in the grid the right character and for the export to work properly?

Thanks

When I run this query against a database with a character set of AL32UTF8, I get Á as a result and not A.


#3

ok, found the answer:

select chr(193 USING NCHAR_CS) as fld from dual

This works fine. So, it’s not an issue of Toad.

@John: Our character set is US7ASCII. I think that explains why I get this behavior. Thanks

Evening Bog,

Sounds like the font you are using to display results in the grid is unable to display unicode (Ha ha, my spell checker wants that to be unicorn) characters.

Try setting the font to something that can handle unicode such as Courier New, perhaps. In Toads settings of course!

Cheers,

Norm [ TeamT ]
