Good morning Stéphane,

Here is the result for this script

SELECT DUMP(name, 16)
FROM tterm
WHERE base =‘20839’

Typ=1 Len=16: 0,62,0,72,0,61,0,63,0,65,0,6c,0,65,0,74

Ok, the leading zeros show that this data is indeed in Unicode. And for one of your previous emails I note that you are running Toad 7.4.

Unfortunately, Toad 7.4 (or any other version of Toad previous to 10.0) cannot display Unicode data.

At present you only have the option to upgrade to Toad 10 I’m afraid.

Looking at your example data above, should this be ‘bracelet’?

Cheers,
Norm. [TeamT]

Evening Stéphane

SELECT DUMP(name, 16)
FROM tterm
WHERE base =‘20839’

DUMP(NAME,16)
Typ=1 Len=16: 0,62,0,72,0,61,0,63,0,65,0,6c,0,65,0,74

That corresponds to ‘bracelet’!

I note from the zeros above that yo are using unicode and from a
previous email that you posted, you are using Toad 7.4. I’m afraid that
that old version of Toad doesn’t cater for unicode at all and the only
way that you will see the data is to upgrade Toad to at least version
10. Sorry.

One other change that you could make, but it will affect the entire
database, is to change the national character set to be something other
than the unicode one you are using just now.

If all you need are the various Western European language characters
(including the Euro) then WE8ISO8859-15 should suffice.

You will need to run the Character Set Analyser first though - to be
sure that you don’t have any NCHARS/NVARCHAR2/NCLOBs etc holding actual
unicode characters that cannot be represented in the new characterset.

The details will be found in the “Globalization” manual.

Good luck.

Cheers,
Norm.

PS. Resent as the one I sent from work this moring doesn’t seem to have
arrived yet!
