  Hi, if that is so (unicode cannot be stored into databases that do not have a unicode character set) then why can I create tables with unicode columns (NCHAR, NVARCHAR2, NCLOB) in such databases? Wouldnt it be more appropriate then for Oracle to cast errors when trying so? To say it the other way round, the sheer fact that it is possible to declare unicode columns in the database implied to me that it is possible to store such values. Am I wrong here?
