This is only applicable when connecting to Vantage with Teradata ODBC Driver.

This error may occur if the DSN in your .odbc.ini file is configured with a non-ASCII character set.

You can try either of the following two solutions:

  • Modify .odbc.ini file by explicitly specifying the line:
    CharacterSet=ASCII
  • Specify CharacterSet=ASCII as an argument in the API you use to establish connection to Vantage.
