When a HELP statement returns an SQL Name or SQL Title, the system replaces any character that is not translatable into the client session character set with the UNICODE identifier for the character. Each UNICODE identifier is preceded with a delimiter character.

The system uses one of the following delimiter characters in SQL Name and SQL title, depending on availability in the session character set, in the order shown:

  • BACKSLASH (U+005C)
  • The YEN SIGN (U+00A5) or WON SIGN (U+20A9), depending on which is present in the session character set at 0x5C.
  • NUMBER SIGN (U+0023), which is present in all supported session character sets.

The UEscape field that follows each SQL Name field identifies the delimiter used.
