DDLSYNC (ddldict & ddlimp) on a Unicode DB creates VARCHAR2 columns as BYTE while they need to be CHAR (Doc ID 1543446.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 06, 2019

Applies to:

Siebel CRM - Version 8.2.2 SIA[22320] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Running DDLSync on a text column, for example:

EIM_PAYMENT.X_NOM_PIECE
with Text 2000 in the Siebel repository

creates this column as VARCHAR2(2000 Byte)
on a unicode DB

(with NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS set to CHAR, but this is irrelevant for the creation by the Siebel utilities)

rather than

VARCHAR2(2000 CHAR)
