Teradata PT allows use of extended multibyte character sets, such as Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Latin, UTF-8, and UTF-16, as long as they are supported and defined for Teradata Database.
The character set must be common among the following elements when using Teradata PT:
- Session character set, as specified in the job script.
- Character set used to encode the job script.
The exception to the preceding rule is that for UTF-8 and UTF-16, the job script may be coded in one character set while the data is in the other, if the proper setup is executed.
For information about UTF-8 / UTF-16 compatibility and setup Options for Specifying UTF-8 and UTF-16 in a Job Script.
For a list of valid values for session character set International Character Set Support (B035-1125).
