Purpose

Determines whether the default behavior for character string comparisons is to consider the case of characters when the transaction semantics are set to Teradata session mode. Also determines whether character column data is treated as case specific by default in Teradata session mode.

In ANSI session mode this field has no effect. Character comparisons consider character case, and character columns are treated as case specific by default in ANSI session mode.
