    Unhappy Unanswered: Forms 6i does not show Greek characters at run-time

    Dear all

    We are running Oracle Forms 6i on Oracle 9i DS on Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition.

    Whilst in design mode in Oracle Forms 6i, I can type Greek language characters in a Text control, however, in run-time mode the greek characters appear garbled.

    I have Greek language set in Control Panel / Regional Settings / Advanced

    Can you give me any hint as to why the Greek characters do not appear in a Text at run-time?

    Thanks in advance

    Maybe you need to set the NLS_LANG environment variable on the client?

    The problem was fixed by defining a Greek character set or UNICODE in the NLS_LANG field of the ORACLE_HOMES setting in the registry of the client PC.
    However other NLS_LANG settings seem to adversely affect the above setting and might garble the language characters again.
