Use TRANSLATE on character strings or character string expressions.

By default, Vantage performs implicit type conversion on UDT arguments that have implicit casts to predefined character types.

To define an implicit cast for a UDT, use the CREATE CAST statement and specify the AS ASSIGNMENT clause. For more information on CREATE CAST, see Teradata Vantageā„¢ - SQL Data Definition Language Syntax and Examples, B035-1144.

Implicit type conversion of UDTs for system operators and functions, including TRANSLATE, is a Teradata extension to the ANSI SQL standard. To disable this extension, set the DisableUDTImplCastForSysFuncOp field of the DBS Control Record to TRUE.
