    Unanswered: Conversion function, problem with fonts

    Hello,
    I have the following problem:

    1) When I select the data using db link, the convert function works properly:
    Code:
    select ab.branch_name, convert(ab.branch_name,'NEE8ISO8859P4','BLT8MSWIN1257') as branch_convert
    from issuing2_0.izd_branches@pbo9 ab
     /
    BRANCH_NAME          BRANCH_CONVERT
    -------------------- --------------------
    Al?ksnes  fili?le    Alūksnes  filiāle
    2) When I try to insert the data into table using the same select, I have wrongly converted data in TEXT2 field

    Code:
    create table test(text1 varchar(100),text2 varchar2(100)) ;
    
    insert into test
    select ab.branch_name, convert(ab.branch_name,'NEE8ISO8859P4','BLT8MSWIN1257') as branch_convert
    from issuing2_0.izd_branches@pbo9 ab;
    
    TEXT1          TEXT2
    -------------------- --------------------
    Al?ksnes  fili?le    Al?ksnes  fili?le
    Could someone help me to get correct data in TEXT2 field?

    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.
