Hi,

Version of DB: Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2.0.2.0 - 64bit Production

I have issue while loading xml_data into xmltype field in the table.
Issue is whenever there is a special character like this 'revisions to §6' in xml text then it is 'revisions to §6' when its in the xmltype field of the table.

There is this new character 'Â' appended before every special character.
I have checked the database characterset
Characterset: NLS_CHARACTERSET Value: AL32UTF8

Did anyone have this issue before or do anyone please help me how to get this issue fixed.
Try this simple script

create table xx_testxml(lx xmltype);/

DECLARE
x_item_doc sys.XMLTYPE := NULL;
BEGIN
SELECT XMLELEMENT("SyncItemPrimaryAttribute", 'revisions to §6' )
INTO x_item_doc
FROM dual;
INSERT
INTO xx_testxml VALUES
(
x_item_doc
);
COMMIT;
END;
/
select * from xx_testxml;

Result
<SyncItemPrimaryAttribute>revisions to §6</SyncItemPrimaryAttribute>

Thanks,
Anjali

See if you get the same problem running this:
declare
  x_item_doc sys.xmltype  :=  null;
begin
  select xmlelement("SyncItemPrimaryAttribute", 'revisions to §6' )
   into  x_item_doc
  from dual;
  dbms_output.put_line( x_item_doc.getCLOBVal() );
end;

DBMS_OUTPUT:
------------
 <SyncItemPrimaryAttribute>revisions to §6</SyncItemPrimaryAttribute>

As an additional note, I use charset(WE8ISO8859P1), and I get the same results as you when I use your charset(AL32UTF8):
select dbms_xmlgen.getXMLType(
  q'{select convert('revisions to §6', 'AL32UTF8') myValue from dual}')
from dual
---MYVALUE--
<ROWSET>
 <ROW>
  <MYVALUE>revisions to §6</MYVALUE>
 </ROW>
</ROWSET>

Hi

I really appreciate the reply you gave. It works fine the way you showed me but I want to insert this data in a XMLTYPE field of a table. Once I do that, I get this additional character 'Â' appended before every special character.

Please let me know if you get the same issue as I mentioned in the sample script.


Thanks,
Anjali

Hi Michael,

Sorry to post this issue again. Just want to make sure everyone looks into it and suggest me something.

But as you said, it would not work.

Thanks,

Trust me, every Senior members have seen your topic but maybe no one knows the answer or is able to reproduce your case.
I have few time for the moment to investigate on it but I think others already did (but failed to get a solution).

One information: what is the NLS_LANG value of the process that started the instance?

Regards
Michel

You cannot see it at SQL level, you have to havc a look at OS level, in your OS process environment.

At OS Level I found LANG - en_US.UTF-8

So it is the default value: AMERICAN_AMERICA.US7ASCII, and so your error.
Set it to AMERICAN_AMERICA.AL32UTF8, restart the instance and I think your problem will be solved.

The issue still exist after setting the NLS_LANG to AMERICAN_AMERICA.AL32UTF8 and restaring the instance.



[Edit MC: change typo NFL to NLS for readability]

That should be NLS, not NFL.

Were you locally connect to the database when you did your latest test or remotely?

That is "connect usr/pass" without "@", we are clear?
With which client tool did you make your tests?
I couldn't reproduce your problem till now.

I ran it in SQL*Plus/Windows but have not your issue.
I will test it on Unix/Linux db to see.
