The character set on the Teradata Database named EBCDIC is intended as a basic EBCDIC character set consisting of 1-byte per character. Architecturally, the EBCDIC encoding scheme consists of 256 possible values (codepoints) represented as hexadecimal values in the range X'00' to X'FF'.

EBCDIC codepoint assignments are:

  • X'00' and X'3F' reserved for control characters
  • X'FF' reserved for the Eight Ones character
  • X'40' is the 'Space' character
  • X'41' through X'FE' are available to represent graphic characters
  •

    Control character codepoints

     

    Reserved codepoints

    The server will reject character data containing the reserved codepoint.

    This is not a well-formed EBCDIC encoding because graphic characters appear in the range reserved for control characters, non-EBCDIC control characters appear in the range reserved for graphic characters, all common control characters are not present, and a graphic character appears in the X'FF' codepoint reserved for the Eight Ones character.

    No special processing is performed by the server for control characters. This includes the Shift Out control character since all codepoints are single-byte. Similarly, the non-EBCDIC control characters Single Shift Two and Single Shift Three imply nothing about subsequent codepoints.
