  1. Set the InstallFlag column to Y for all character sets you want to activate. The limit is 16 active character sets.
    UPDATE DBC.CharTranslationsV SET InstallFlag=’Y’ WHERE CharSetId = charactersetid;

    or

    UPDATE DBC.CharTranslationsV SET InstallFlag=’Y’ WHERE CharSetName = ‘charactersetname’;
  2. Perform a full restart of the database, using the tpareset utility.
    If more than 16 rows are flagged as Y at tpareset, the system sorts CharSetName values in ascending ASCII sequence and enables the rows in alphabetical order until the 16 set limit is reached.

    For usage information, see tpareset in Teradata Vantage™ - Database Utilities, B035-1102.
