Resolving the problem
Make sure you setup the Database with the following settings,
Steps:1. Select * from NLS_DATABASE_PARAMETERS
2. Check that NLS_CHARACTERSET and NLS_NCHAR_CHARACTERSET are both set to the above.
NOTE: In some cases, the database may have been created using a different character set, and was then manually modified to match the above character set. If this is the case, and you are still getting the above error, recreate the database with the correct character set from the outset.
