Hi,

While findout the solution for arabic printing in Reports, I have been asked to check the database installed which character set.
I don't know to findout this. Can anybody suggest please?

My problem is, In forms I am accepting arabic text (I changed the text font as "Arabic Transparent") and storing into the database. I have no problem while querying through sql plus, or to view from forms. But when I try to print through Reports, it is printing some junk characters.

I have gone through all clues provided in this forms but I still yet to find the right solution.
