    11gR2 codeset and problems with Greek

    919983
      Hi there folks,
      I just finished installing 11gR2 XE edition for testing our eCargo application for small clients.
      Problem is the instance it creates it is in UTF8, correct?
      So whenever we import Greek characters in the database (10gR2 with AMERICAN_AMERICA.EL8ISO8859P7 charset) it uses two chars for one greek character.
      Is there any way we can make the XE instance to run into ISO8859 charset instead of UTF8?

      I read already some topics and some guys say it's done with alter sys tables while others say no.
      Any suggestions?

      Best regards from troubled Greece,
      Socrates
