All object names are stored in the data dictionary in UNICODE. Teradata provides a file, UOBJNEXT.txt, which lists the UNICODE characters valid for object names.
You can download the file here:
- Access Teradata Vantage™ - Advanced SQL Engine International Character Set Support, B035-1125 at https://docs.teradata.com/.
- In the left pane, select Attachments to download the International_Character_Set_Text_Files zip file.
Use of these UNICODE characters in object names is subject to limitations imposed by:
- The session (client) character set. See Client Character Set Options.
- Object naming controls. See Teradata Vantage™ - SQL Fundamentals, B035-1141.
