A character set specifies which characters are available (for example, whether the Japanese characters are available) and how those characters are represented (for example, as EBCDIC or ASCII). Character data in logon strings, request data, response data, and error messages are affected by which character set is being used.

For more information about character sets, see Character Sets.
