ODBC Driver for Teradata supports the Unicode Data Dictionary. It is a Unicode Driver that seamlessly supports both Unicode and ANSI applications.

ODBC Driver for Teradata communicates with Teradata Database using the following supported session character sets:

  • Unicode UTF-8 and UTF-16 session
  • Double-byte Chinese and Korean
  • EUC and SJIS double-byte Kanji and single-byte Katakana
  • ASCII and Latin session
  • Table 38 contains a complete list of supported session character sets.
