Dear ALL,

We have one issue in my implementaion i am a ORACLE DBA support multiple database across different countries,We hosted one database in Location eg:Dennmark my problem is our client connect to database(Located in Dennmark) through VPN in different country eg Dubai,India,Finland.We need to setup a client PC to print database reports,forms based on LOCAL NLS-date and timing, should print local time,date not database server date.Can you please advice any possibility to set date format, and timezone based on client environment instead database timezone where it located at Denmark.

Thanks&Regards,
Anil

Client sessions are automatically configured with client date and time zone.
But you have to use the correct function; for instance, SYSDATE gives the database datetime, CURRENT_DATE gives the client datetime.

Dear Michel,

Thanks for reply,I also have some doubts in setting character set,My database is configured with UTF8 character set to support multiple language,Please note my client application using oracle-6i forms and reports,Kindly advice can we configure client PC in regedit as


NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.UTF8



above setting in client regedit will allow user to input multiple language,Please clarify this

Regards,
Anil

You can set that if your client OS uses that: you MUST set it to the language used by the OS.
The only exception I know to this rule is when you use an Internet browser to query through an application server as all browsers support UTF8.
