Hi experts,

I faced different problem while importing the data. The exported dump file had content of both English and arabic. However, after importing into the same system (Personal Oracle 8i), when I gone through the data through Forms, all arabic content replaced with "???????".

Setting for NLS_LANG is correct.

Any clue?

I face the same problem with Oracle10g
Setting for NLS_LANG is correct too
Arabic content replaced with (????) and sometimes replaced with machine symbols ( ╘▐ ┌ ┘╫ ╓ ╒ )
** after reinstall Oracle with the same setting it solves the
problem !!!!
