Hi,
We have a 9i database where we store the data in English. We want to be able to store records in other languages too (chineese and Italian). In order to have this, do I have to make any change in the database? Do I need additional space to store data in other language? We use UTF8 character set.
Thanks,
GK

UTF8 character set supports all unicode character in the database, so you need not to configure the database again,

For increasing column lenght you dont need extra disk space
but if yor table grows rapidy comes millions n millions rows then you would need spce.
