    Unanswered: Charset conversion to UTF-8

    We need to convert our database charset from WE8MSWIN1252 to UTF-8. According to Oracle documentation, we have to do an export, create db with utf-8 and then do import. Our database is about 700GB and export/import will take a very long time. Is there any other way without export/import.

    NO! It must be done via exp/imp
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
