In previous versions, if an Oracle database was created with NLS_CHARACTERSET set to AL32UTF8 and NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS to CHAR, a START within a COBOL program using Acu4GL to access the database encountered a 23 error, on a key that should have be found.

Version 8.1.2, ECN-GL443 modified this behavior. the new default behavior of the product is to cause the START to locate the desired record. If you encounter a problem with the new behavior, using the configuration variable ECN_GL443 and setting it to "N" will revert the product back to the original behavior.
