The STATIC_SESSION_LANGUAGE option is a read-write option that controls whether or not Oracle OLAP keeps the value of the SESSION_NLS_LANGUAGE option synchronized with the value of the NLS_LANGUAGE option.
See also:"Working with Language Dimension Status"
STATIC_SESSION_LANGUAGE = NO | YES
Specifies that whenever the value of the NLS_LANGUAGE option changes, Oracle OLAP changes the value of SESSION_NLS_LANGUAGE to the value of the NLS_LANGUAGE option. (Default)
Specifies that the value of SESSION_NLS_LANGUAGE does not change when the value of NLS_LANGUAGE changes.
Example 5-9, "Changing NLS_LANGUAGE" illustrates how changing the NLS_LANGUAGE value can change the language of the OLAP session. This example illustrates how you can keep the language of the OLAP session the same even as the value of the NLS_LANGUAGE option changes.
Assume that you attach your analytic workspace while the NLS_LANGUAGE is American. As the following code illustrates by changing the value of the STATIC_SESSION_LANGUAGE to Yes, you can insure that even as the value of the NLS_LANGUAGE option is changed to French, the value of the SESSION_NLS_LANGUAGE stays American which means that Oracle OLAP limits the language dimension (
mylangs) to American.
