You are using ODP.NET 184.108.40.206.20 (Oracle.DataAccess.dll) and the OracleGlobalization class to execute code that sets the default multilingual linguistic sort order:
The Sort property allows you to change the value of NLS_SORT from ODP.NET.
If you inspect the Sort property prior to setting it, it defaults to "BINARY".
If you inspect the Sort property after setting it to "GENERIC_M_CI", it has been set to "GENERIC".
The "_M_CI" suffix has been removed.
"M" designates that the sort is MULTILIGUAL.
"CI" designates that the sort is CASE_INSENSITIVE.
Why is the suffix being removed?
