Character Set (NLS_LANG) query

Hi ,

I'd like to ask wether we can set more than one character set as an environment variable in a command prompt.


Is it only one character set  is in use ? in this case the last one which is the UTF8 .

NLS_LANG is environment variable and read by shell to execute things which needed this variable, it is just like programming, if u set a vraible something and then in next line set to something else, it will have the last value.
I hope i understand your question correctly.
