These types are described as SQL_WCHAR, SQL_WVARCHAR, and SQL_WLONGVARCHAR, and are returned as supported by SQLGetTypeInfo. In addition, the "normal" char types (char, varchar2, long, clob) are described as SQL_CHAR, SQL_VARCHAR, and SQL_LONGVARCHAR regardless of the character set on the Oracle server.
See "Unicode Support" on page 300 for details.

NOTE: Valid only on Oracle 9i and higher.

If set to 1 (Enabled), the driver provides support for the N-types NCHAR, NVARCHAR2, and NCLOB.
If set to 0 (Disabled), the driver does not provide support for the N-types NCHAR, NVARCHAR2, and NCLOB.
