Funky Characters in SQL Loader

Hi folks
so I use SQL Developer's "Loader" format to export a big DB into flat files (LDR). However, I noticed that when reinserting them via SQL Loader,

Rodríguez (notice the accented "i") becomes Rodr¿¿guez.

Is there a way to stop this from happening? The files are generated and inserted in SUSE Linux.

First guess, you can stop it by switching your client's default character set to the one used to build the extracted file.  Secondly, switch to a more universal set.  See in particular the case 3 example from:
