PL/SQL :: Retrieving Columns With Non-english Characters?

Nov 26, 2012

I'm running a query using SQL Developer on a table which contains several companies names from many different countries, and one of the checks I need to make to ensure data consistency is to search for all rows which the name of company contains special or non-english characters (like ç, ã, ä as example).

I don't know what can I use to do this. I tried to collate using NLS_SORT but it didn't work.

Is there someway to select only the rows that contain these special or non-english characters, excluding from the results the rows that only have english characters? We have many languages in this table.

The field I would like to make the conditions on is VARCHAR2.

Globalization :: Non-English Character In Oracle 10g Express Edition

Oct 5, 2012

I have a table. It's name is INSTITUTION. It has a NUMBER INS_ID and NVARCHAR2(50) INS_NAME . INS_NAME can contain Turkish characters, such as "ğ,ü,ş,ç,ö". According to business logic, there can not be a repetition on the INS_NAME.User will enter institution name from a textbox in ASP.NET , and I check this name in database from c sharp code, if there is no repetition, we will add this record.

The problem is; when user enter a instition name that contains Turkish character, there is a duplication. If there is a instition name is *"su işleri"* , the both query; SELECT * FROM INSTITUTION WHERE INS_NAME = *'su işleri'*; and SELECT * FROM INSTITUTION WHERE INS_NAME = *'su isleri'*; returns no result, even though there it is.But if instition name is "oracle corporation" (there is no Turkish character) it query successfully. I have the same problem in Toad for Oracle When I query database from toad SELECT * FROM INSTITUTION, the phrase *"su işleri"* has appeared. But when I query SELECT * FROM INSTITUTION WHERE INS_NAME = *'su işleri'*; , there is again no result.When I connect oracle database directly and perform the query SELECT * FROM INSTITUTION , the phrase *"su isleri"* (not *"su işleri"* ) has appeared.

Here are the language settings of the database:

National Language Support
National Language Parameter Value

I've got this situation.

In a not normalized table loaded with data from an excel file, I have a column containing a long string with many carriage returns so that after each of them it begins a new string I have to manipulate. I mean, in the column PERSON I've got something like this:

Of course I have to write a Pl/Sql procedure extracting each string and I know that each string ends with a carriage return chr(13)||chr(10)

I think I should use the INSTR built-in function but I it'd be useful whether some of you had something ready.

Forms :: Enter Arabic In English Text Field

Apr 24, 2013

I have a problem in Oracle Forms 10g. For any field that should be by default right-to-left (arabic), the reading order is changed when entering the field, but the keyboard is not changed to Arabic automatically. The user has to type ALT+ Shift to manually modify the language.

I worked before with Forms 2000 and Forms 6i (in client/server mode only), it was working fine. Is it impossible on Web Forms? Must I use a Java Bean? If yes, is there something existing to perform what I need?

Restrict Values To English Without Requiring That A Value Exist In Request Table

Jul 8, 2009

I have the following tables:

UOM_CODES_TL ("tl" means translation - this table has the same record 3 times, once for English, once for Spanish, and one for France)

So what I'm trying to do with the outer join ((+)) is to get the request record, regardless of whether the r.unit_of_measure is null. That works as long as I don't include the underlined portion above. As soon as I do that it only returns results where r.unit_of_measure is not null. That all makes sense to me, but I'm wondering how I can restrict the values to English without requiring that a value exist in the request table.

Inserting Character From Extended ASCII Character Set?

Mar 8, 2007

I'm trying to insert a character from the extended ascii character set. Specifically, there's a company that has an accented e (�) in the name. Right now, the company name doesn't have the e at all, accent or no accent. So I'm trying to do an update, something like

update table1 set company_name='blah�" where company='blah'

It runs, but doesn't do the update. Even when I try to forcefully do an insert (instead of an update) I get nowhere; the accented is simply dropped. So the basic question is, how do you insert extended ascii characters into oracle?

Globalization :: Character Encoding - LATIN-1 Character In UTF-8 DB?

Feb 9, 2013

I am using C++ OCI LIB, to insert some report data from remote OCI client to oracle 11 server. This data is read by another process to create the report.The DB CHARSET is UTF-8. But the report tool expects the data to be ISO08859-1 encoded. So while inserting the data into the database i specify the following LANG and CHARSET for my table colulmn in client:

size_t csid = 871; // UTF-8
OCIAtrSet((void *) bnd1p, (ub4) OCI_HTYPE_BIND,
*(void *)&csid*,
(ub4) 0,
(ub4)OCI_ATTR_CHARSET_ID, errhp);

This solution works for almost every case of ASCII and Extended ASCII Charest but we are facing issues if we have few specific characters to be inserted.f we are trying to insert single beta character [β] through client, the data goes empty to the column.

Beta Character details:
DEC     OCT     HEX     BIN     Symbol           Description
223     337     DF     11011111     ß     Latin small letter sharp s - ess-zed

DB Output after insert single β:
select rawtohex(NAME) from PERSONS where EID=333;


But if the string is *"ββ"* everything work fine:
DB Output for "ββ":
select rawtohex(NAME) from PERSONS where EID=333;
