In the EBCDIC client character set, each byte represents one character. EBCDIC is available for mainframe clients.
The Teradata EBCDIC client character set is suitable for applications that use simple Roman characters, however, accented characters and certain special symbols require an exact match between application and client character set. In such cases it is normally best to use a custom (user-defined) character set. See Site-Defined Client Character Sets
The translation codes for the EBCDIC character set are permanently enabled for use in Teradata Database.
Teradata also provides support for several commonly used EBCDIC character set variations, which you must enable before using. See Enabling a Client Character Set.
