it looks that you have a lunix server so if it it that you should install arabik font in your system

Gee, guys I guess you are not getting what I described correctly.

so i will to describe it more in points:

1- arabic character appear correctly for forms in runtime no problem there.

2- i have created a form from which a press on a button and use the run_product function to call (reports) to generate a report from the list i have in the form after some query is made.

3- report is generated fine but arabic values or characters in the database when transferred from oracle forms to oracle reports appear incorrectly.

I mentioned earlier that when i use oracle reports directly and connect to the database which are all on tha same place my own laptop, arabic characters appear fine if are extracted directly.
problem when moved between products forms-to-reports using run_product function. what should i do to make arabic values appear when calling run_product. should i use utf-8 or what?? oracle wizards please help.. Cool thanks..

Have you solved your problem? Have you searched and read the numerous entries containing 'nls_lang arabic'?

go to regedit
change all nls_lang to (Arabic_Egypt.AR8MSWIN1256)
also in windows (regional and language option)
use arabic language
