Q

Understanding current database character set

How can I find out about the details of my current database character set? Your current database character set

can be easily deterimined by querying the database as follows:

select property_name,property_value
from database_properties where property_name like '%CHARACTERSET%';

If you want to know more about your specific character sets, you'll have to look up that information in the Oracle documentation.
