Object names on systems enabled with Japanese language support can contain single-byte Latin and Katakana characters from the JIS X 0201 standard, and double-byte characters from the JIS X 0208 standard.

The valid ranges for JIS X 0201 and JIS X 0208 characters in KANJISJIS_0S object names appear in Shift-JIS Encoding. Characters in the reserved regions of the JIS X 0208 standard are not allowed.

Gaiji characters with first byte values 0xF0-0xF9 and IBM characters with first byte values 0xFA-0xFC are not allowed in object names. Additionally, some characters that are valid in JIS X 0208 do not map to the KanjiEBCDIC encoding and are not valid in KANJISJIS_0S object names.

The following table provides a complete list of multibyte character codes that are not valid for object names under the KANJISJIS_0S character set.

0x81 0x40 - 0x49 0x4C - 0x50
0x52 - 0x5A 0x5C - 0x8F

0x83 0x9F - 0xFC
