Hi,

I am using 10g Database and 10g forms/reports on Windows.

NLS_LANG = AMERICAN_AMERICA.AL32UTF8 for both database and forms/reports. I set this from REGEDIT.

I want to use, Arial Unicode Ms or Mangal font to add or view the data in MARATHI (Regional).

In the database browser, I can see the ported data properly with these two fonts, but through form if I try to add then it not showing proper characters, it showing squraes instead of typed characters.

I also typed a label in the form, at design time it showing proper word, but at runtime it not showing proper letters. This I observed only for joined characters.

If I generates the report in PDF, format then it not showing data properly. but in runtime it showing properly.


Please guide me for use of Unicode font

Search this forum for 'nls_lang' and maybe 'unicode'. This has been asked and answered previously.

Hi David,


Thanks for your prompt reply. As per your Instruction, I searched for key words, but I have not got the proper solution. Please give me proper guidance.

I am uploading the file to how at design time and run time same word is displayed. It also not allowing me to type, it displays '?' instead of letter.

Please reply ASAP.

Regards,

Jaymala

Hi,

Still I am facing the same problem for Unicode.

For database paramaeters are

NLS_NCHAR_CHARACTERSET = AL16UTF16
NLS_CHARACHTERSET = WE8MSWIN1252

Can you please help me to solve the problem.

If from back-end I update the value in MARATHI (Asial Lang.) font then it stores in database properly but If I try to retrieve through the form then it showing 'żżżż żżżżż'.

If I try to type through form then it showing '????????' and storing same in database.

Regards,

Jaymala

Okay, there isn't an 'nls' setting in 'formsweb.cfg'. Maybe there isn't one in the Develoepr Server but I do know that there is one in the Application Server because it has given me problems before. Are you using a DS or an AS?

Have a look at http://www.orafaq.com/forum/m/309700/67467/?srch=nls+code+page#msg_309700

I think you need to do more research concerning your PCs environment. The code page of the PC affects the DS.

This thread is ancient & DJMARTIN has since retired.

Is the problem a data storage problem or a data retrieval/presentation problem?
