1/ Does AR8MSWIN1256 which is "Microsoft Windows Code Page 1256 8-Bit Latin/Arabic" support Urdu characters?
2/ Does you Forms use this setting?
3/ Does your database support these characters (i.e. what is its character set)?

YES IT SUPPORT URDU BECAUSE NOT A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN URDU AND ARABIC ALPHABETS.

2/ Does you Forms use this setting?
CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO CHECK FORM 6i SETTING.

3/ Does your database support these characters (i.e. what is its character set)?
FOLLOWING IS THE CHARACTER SET, I HAVE USED THE FOLLOWING SQL TO FIND THE VALUE

SELECT *
FROM v$nls_parameters
WHERE parameter LIKE '%CHARACTERSET';


PARAMETER VALUE

NLS_CHARACTERSET WE8MSWIN1252
NLS_NCHAR_CHARACTERSET AL16UTF16

For 2. I can't tell but I know Littlefoot or cookiemonster can.
For 3. Do not check v$nls_parameters but NLS_DATABASE_PARAMETERS.

Also post the result of the following query from a client Forms workstation (not the database server):
Select distinct client_charset||' - '||client_version
from v$session_connect_info
where sid = sys_context('USERENV','SID')
  and client_charset is not null

This problem can occur due to various reasons, including incorrect character set settings or font rendering issues. In order to isolate the issue, try using a different application or tool to interact with the Oracle database and retrieve the Urdu data. This can help determine if the problem is specific to Oracle Forms or if it exists at a lower level in the database or operating system. Moreover, ensure that the character set settings in Oracle Forms are configured correctly for Urdu. You can check the NLS_LANG parameter in your Oracle environment to confirm that it is set to the appropriate character set for Urdu, such as AL32UTF8 or UTF8. Additionally, make sure that the database, client, and server character sets are compatible and aligned.
If the issue persists, it may be beneficial to seek assistance from Oracle support or consult relevant community forums, including those specializing in legal translation services. They can provide specific guidance based on your Oracle Forms version, database setup, and operating system configuration.
