NLS_DUAL_CURRENCY

Property Description
Parameter type String
Syntax NLS_DUAL_CURRENCY = currency_symbol
Default value Derived from NLS_TERRITORY
Modifiable ALTER SESSION
Range of values Any valid format name up to 10 characters

NLS_DUAL_CURRENCY specifies the dual currency symbol (such as "Euro") for the territory. The default is the dual currency symbol defined in the territory of your current language environment.

Note:

The value of this initialization parameter NLS_DUAL_CURRENCY is 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_LANG client setting (environment variable) is defined. The initialization parameter value is, therefore, usually ignored.
