Running the Oracle Client on a Non-English Database
If you run the DATABridge Oracle Client on a non-English language database (for example, Portuguese, Spanish, French, German), you may run into problems with replicated data that includes decimals. DATABridge follows the U.S. standard of using a period to represent a decimal mark, unlike most European languages, which use a comma.
DATABridge Oracle Client is designed to use SQL statements that assume the database language is U.S. English. Therefore, you must make the following changes before running the DATABridge Oracle Client to ensure that these numeric values are correctly interpreted and won't result in SQL errors.
Note: Alternatively, you can modify the bulk loader settings by exporting the Client configuration file and editing the [bulk loader] values as follows:
