Last updated on AUGUST 15, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.1.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal


Application is reading £ character and they expect the £ character represented as ASCII code 163. 

Database is using AL32UTF8, however the £ character is represented as "194,163" (C2A3), and application is not able to handle it correctly:

Application team is reading this value correctly when using ASCII code 163 but it is showing some unwanted character(A-Delta) when reading as 194.
