Oracle Import error - enterprise to standard db

We're downsizing from enterprise to standard because of licensing reasons.

When I do an import, i get:

. . importing table                 "TTICPR951101"
IMP-00020: long column too large for column buffer size (22)
IMP-00028: partial import of previous table rolled back: 858363 rows rolled back

At the top of the import, I noticed that the charsets are not quite the same:

Connected to: Oracle9i Release 9.2.0.6.0 - 64bit Production
JServer Release 9.2.0.6.0 - Production

Export file created by EXPORT:V09.02.00 via direct path
import done in US7ASCII character set and AL16UTF16 NCHAR character set
export server uses UTF8 NCHAR character set (possible ncharset conversion)

1- Is the import problem related to the message "possible ncharset conversion" ?
2- Maybe a bad export via direct and unix compress .Z ?

3- How do I create a standard edition database that is exactly the same as my enterprise edition database so that when I import I will have the same charset, lang on both ends ?

I thank You in advance since this is driving me over the brink :-) and your help is greatly appreciated.

Create it with the same character sets?

You might be able to migrte as long as the new character set is a subset of the new one.

Check out the NLS_LANG environment variable.


Does the old database have a Function Based Index?

There is a great thread for this error at:
