Object names include User, Database, Table, View, Macro, Column names, and many more. Starting with Teradata Database 14.10, object names can be extended up to 128 characters and contain an extended variety of characters, which includes almost all Unicode characters supported by the database, except pass-through characters. Additionally, object names may be represented using the Unicode delimited identifier notation in different contexts.

User name, password, account string, and default database names can be used with both the extended length and the extended set of characters in the connection string. The configuration dialogs and the odbc.ini settings support the extended length and the same character set as earlier releases of ODBC Driver for Teradata.
