Oracle does support URDU characters for storage. By the sae token, Forms 6i also supports. You can retrieve urdu characters (any characters for that matter) and display them on your forms applicaton. But you either need Urudu windows or a font for proper display

Check out NLS (National Language Support) documentation from Oracle.

http://technet.oracle.com/docs/products/oracle8i/doc_library/817_doc/server.817/a76966/toc.htm

This documentation is a must to read if you are aiming to support non-ascii characters in your database or application.

The Oracle database supports urdu for storing urdu characters. It also supports right to left entry of characters etc. NLS_LANG controls the characterset of the database. You need to choose this at the time of creation of the database. It can be changed subsequently but only if the change of the characterset does not mean that some characters cannot be converted due to the change.

In addition to NLS_LANG, these are the NLS paremeters that can be changed.
