Hi All,

Can anyone help me to get the french character in my pdf output.

I have got a data field with french character.But when it is shown in the report out in PDF format, it gets replaced with some special character.

it's not an easy problem to answer, but probably has to do with your NLS settings. Is the PDF document created on a (unix?) server or on a PC?

There are many variables including the database characterset, that correct storage of the french character in the database. Use udump() to show you the actual bytes stored for that character. Below is a check to see how a Euro sign is stored in UTF8:

SQL> select dump(chr(14844588)) from dual;

Typ=1 Len=3: 226,130,172

Open a TAR with Metalink if you have support.
