If the character set you use on a client system is represented by a single-byte character set, and the Teradata-supplied ASCII-compatible or EBCDIC-compatible character sets do not provide all the characters you need, you can create a custom (site-defined) client character set.

A custom client character set that you create using the procedures in the following sections must be able to translate to the Teradata LATIN server character set.
