You can apply CHAR2HEXINT to a string literal to determine its hexadecimal equivalent.

Character literals are treated as VARCHAR(n) CHARACTER SET UNICODE, where n is the length of the literal.

The following statement and results illustrate how CHAR2HEXINT operates on literal strings:

   SELECT CHAR2HEXINT('123');
   
   Char2HexInt('123')
