After upgrading the current production environment from Oracle 9i to Oracle 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52 a SQL SELECT returns a different length when using the LPAD function within an OCI 7 application.
Here is the SQL being executed using OCI: "select lpad('abcd',6,'z') from dual"
Against an Oracle 9i environment the result is a length of 6.
Against an Oracle 11g 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11 environment the result is a length of 4000.
