Note:The value of this initialization parameter
NLS_CURRENCYis used to initialize the session value of this parameter, which is the actual value referenced by the SQL query processing. This initial value is overridden by a client-side value if the client uses the Oracle JDBC driver or if the client is OCI-based and the
NLS_LANGclient setting (environment variable) is defined. The initialization parameter value is, therefore, usually ignored.
