    Hello Ram,

    Kindly check SAP KBA1887981


    The requested read operation could not complete because a partial multibyte character was found at the end of the input.


    • Ensure that the complete multibyte character is sent from the remote server and retry the operation. Or read the partial multibyte character as RAW.
    • The core issue of that the nls_chracterset values for the multibyte character set does not match between either two databases in a distributed query, or a query where the webserver has a different character set. There are several possible fixes for the ORA-29275 error, all involving getting the NLS character sets to match:
    1. Write a function to convert each row. Place this function inside a PL/SQL function and call it for each row of the table:CONVERT(COLUMN NAME,'NLS_CHARACTERSET','NLS_CHARACTERSET');
    2. If you have a webserver, try setting the NLS_LANG environmental variable on the webserver to american_america.al32utf8.
