    character set 11g

    582889
      Hi

      I want to migrate 10g database which is using WE8ISO8859P1 characterset to fresh 11gR2 however and not decided which characterset to use.( AL32UTF8 or WE8ISO8859P1 )

      1-)
      What is the disadvantage of using WE8ISO8859P1 as the database character set and using AL16UTF16 as the National character set.
      We will need to use Nchar datatype since we have some issues with japenese characters.


      2-) I couldnt find WE8ISO8859P1 character set in 11g dbca, I could find WE8MSWIN1252. What is the reason for this ?


      Thanks in advance
