hi,
look into the nls_sort setting for your session/db. I'm not sure you can do what you want in 9.2, you may need to go to 10gr2 for that.

I'm talking here about case-insensitive comparisons, the data you retrieve ( i.e. what the SQL returns will always be what you have in the DB, it will not automatically UPPER or LOWER your char data.
