can Updating existing database(Oracle 11g) to UTF-8


    I Just met a difficult problem.My jira and wiki shared a database which is Oracle 11g,the database character is GBK 32.However,when I transfer the data from the old 11g database to a new database which  is Oracle 12c. It shows that some column was incorrupted because the character in 11g show with 2 bytes,but shows with 3bytes in 12c.

      How to deal with the problem above,I just read the article"",it says can update the database character to UTF-8  directly.Can i do it in my Oracle database?

         look forward to your reply!

Hi Wendy,

The equivalent for Oracle is AL32UFT8. I found the following post in the Oracle community to change a database to this encoding:

Oracle11g: how I change character set to AL32UTF8?

Can you have a look at that page and see if you're able to change it using those methods?

Kind Regards,
