Well, thats kind of the problem when converting binary data to text. What do the bits represent? What encoding was used when you got the raw data from the text in the first place? 101010111101010101110101010 (to make something up) has a differnt meaning if you're talking ASCII vs UTF8 vs Chinese vs Hebrew.
You may want to look into the UTL_I18N package, specifically the RAW_TO_CHAR and RAW_TO_NCHAR functions.
Also, you're completely in the wrong forum here. You may want to post this in one of the database or NLS forums. Oracle Services for Microsoft Transaction Server is a forum for distributed transaction recovery from Windows clients.
Hope it helps,
