RDBPROD: Traditional Chinese characters are not displayed correctly in .NET using ORDP (Doc ID 1494365.1)

Last updated on APRIL 14, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Rdb Server on OpenVMS - Version 7.3 and later
Oracle Rdb Developer Tools for Visual Studio - Version 7.3 to [Release 7.3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


It is not possible to get BIG5 characters returned correctly using ORDP. Using a Data Reader and GetBytes and Encoding.GetEncoding("Big5") works, but not with GetString or with a Data Adapter.

The same works correctly with UTF8 characters.
