Usage Notes

The KANJISJIS type has a mixed single byte/multibyte character form-of-use of the KANJISJIS client character set.

The database storage space allocation for this type is on a byte basis rather than character basis. When updating the field, truncation occurs based on this physical space.

All SQL string functions on this type operate on a logical character basis.

This type is included for third party tools that rely on the semantics of KANJISJIS, such as the string length or physical space allocation.

Restrictions

CLOBs do not support the KANJISJIS server character set.
