Conversion of character data type between a client form-of-use and the Teradata Database form-of-use may encounter exception situations.
There are three possible exceptions.
|Illegal client data form-of-use||An illegal form-of-use occurs when the client data violates the structure of the client form-of-use, for example, an unmatched SI character in KanjiEBCDIC.||Illegal Form-of-Use|
|Conversion exception||A conversion exception occurs when there is no character in the target repertoire that corresponds to a character from the source string.|
|Truncation exception||A truncation exception occurs when the source cannot fit into the target field without truncation of a non-pad character.||Truncation Exceptions|
