Unicode chars insertion into Oracle lite

P: n/a
hi guys

i m writing a VB.NET app using the Oracle Lite database as the data source.
Got a problem with inserting unicode chars e.g. chinese into the database
when using the dataadapter and dataset insert command. It gave a
NullReferenceException.

Followings are what i suspect might be causing the problem:
1. olbdbadapter of oracle for .net not able to support unicode
2. oracle lite db not able to support unicode - i have directly inserted
chinese chars into the tables so seems like this is not the cause
3. charset not set for database when creation - i created one with a certain
charset but still failed
4. charset not set for the connectionstring to the database - i indicated in
my connectionstring but still failed
5. charset not set for vb application

I am at a loss now. Anyone encountered this before and solution for it?

pls help
Thanks
