1220184 - Error: "SQL Exception: [SQL State] 72000...ORA-12704: characterset mismatch"

Symptom

In Crystal Reports XI, when you open a report that uses a JDBC connection to an Oracle 10G client, the following error message appears:

"SQL Exception: [SQL State] 72000 [Error Message] ORA-12704: characterset mismatch [database Vendor Code 12704]".

Cause

The cause of the problem is that Crystal Reports uses an N literal against an Oracle 8i server. This configuration causes a SQL statement parsing failure.

The issue has been identified and tracked under ID ADAPT00548876.

Resolution

Hot Fixes or Service Packs address this issue as indicated below. With the update(s), this problem is resolved.

To solve the problem, the JDBC driver checks the server's version to determine whether to add the N literal.

Unless indicated otherwise, Critical Hot Fix updates from the FTP site have only been tested with English versions of our products.
