If you enable Japanese language support, by default Vantage stores:
- Object names in the Data Dictionary using the UNICODE server character set
- User data in Analytics Database tables using the UNICODE server character set.
In Japanese Language Mode, the default server character set for user DBC is UNICODE.
The default server character set from user DBC (UNICODE) is inherited when the Teradata SQL DATABASE statement is used to change the default database.
Using UNICODE to Store User Data
Unicode is a 16-bit encoding of virtually all characters in all current international languages. User data stored as Unicode can be easily shared among clients that use diverse character sets.
For more information about Teradata support for UNICODE, see UNICODE Server Character Set.
