Database 11g Migration from Character Set AL32UTF8 to WE8MSWIN1252

Hi,

I'm a newbie in Oracle's world and I'm planning to migrate a schema from character set AL32UTF8 to WE8MSWIN1252. However, researching the internet I found lots of people reporting problems when migrating from WE8MSWIN1252 to AL32UTF8.

Does anyone know if it's possible to convert the character set to WE8MSWIN1252 without major impacts to the database? Will I need to expand fields? Will I need to remove any special character before migrating?

I'm looking forward for your comments.

Best Regards

Legend
