The problem I'm having is that Latin-1 accented characters are getting stored as question marks in the database. For example, "fašade" (c with cedilla) is stored as "fa?ade" Does anyone have any idea how to fix this problem?

I'm using Oracle 10g running on Linux.
This is the test query I ran from sqlplus:

    SQL> UPDATE release SET message='fašade' WHERE release_id=5831;     1 row updated.
    SQL> select message from release where release_id=5831;     MESSAGE



    fa?ade

I have included my Oracle NLS database parameters. Is there some global server option I can set to allow ISO-8859-1 characters? Or is there some option I can set per query?

Yours,
Noah
