I created a database with AL32UTF8 character set.

Then i created a table with a column varchar2 type.

After that i tried to insert hindi data.[copy/paste from internet]

but when i select the query "?????" appears instead of hindi charcaters.

Secondly,as reports are printed out from data generated through proc,what changes needs to be done in Proc code to recognize hindi characters so that they could print out as required.

Where do you paste your text? The problem comes from this client application or client configuration (NLS_LANG).

Same thing. Does your client application supports hindi? Does your client NLS_LANG set for hindi? Are you data in database hindi or are they "?", dump the column?

None. It is a problem of your OS not your program. Does your OS configure for this character set? Does your NLS_LANG set to suppport this character set?

I am testing it on my local machine.
I copy/pasted hindi words from a hindi website to see what happens.

I have set nls_lang to hindi.

This is what i see

Create table a (n varchar2(10));
insert into a values('????');
select * from a;
????
