The default server character set for a procedure is set by Teradata support. If you want to change this default, contact Teradata support.

The following bullets list the possible default session collations for a procedure.

  • The default session collation is that of the user who executes the procedure.

    This is the standard default.

  • The default session collation is that of the user who created the procedure.

This means that result sets returned to either a client application or a calling procedure use the collation established for the called procedure even though they return their results using the character set of the client application or procedure.
