There’s some sort of wierd formatting going on with the email. In each line
I added 2 more blank spaces to the 'hello world ’

For some reason after I sent the mail you don’t see the added blanks
between world and the single quote.

Hey Brian,

[snip]

select null || 'hello world ’ hello_world from dual;

hello worl

select null || 'hello world ’ hello_world from dual;

hello world

It’s just because you see the email/post as HTML, which may compress the
multiple spaces. When converted to plain text, they’re there. In any case:

  1. What’s the DB character set from V$NLS_PARAMETERS?

  2. The NULL is not the same as CHR(0) – it does not have a length. Do you
    see differences in the above if you wrap the NULL||’…’ in a DUMP()
    function?

Let us know, let us know, let us know!

Disclaimer: And since we’ve no place to go…

That looks like it’s doing a substr based on the end value.

Here’s a curious question: what do you see when you sneak a peek at what the
query is actually doing?

In case you’re not familiar with it, the installation of Toad comes complete
with a SQL Tracker Utility (great tool). You should be able to find it under
Toad -> Tools in your menu selection. In Toad 10.6.1.3 it’s called “SQL
Tracker”. Once it’s logging against your Toad session, run the query and
take a look at the tracker results to see what was actually sent to the
database.
