You likely need to make sure that your SAS server/configuration and the Oracle DB  is set up for unicode support.

Re: sas 9.4 arabic support



as recommended, what you will need is support for UNICODE from the SAS configuration.


You can do this by adding it, by updating your binaries, and you can also do it manually by changing some files called sasv9.conf or sasv9_usermods.conf.
