Conversion of a mixed single- and multibyte client character set is handled as follows:

  • The conversion of mixed single-byte/multibyte character sets is performed using hard-coded tables, or algorithms, for the 3 supported character sets (KanjiEBCDIC, KanjiEUC, and KanjiShift-JIS).
  • The DBC.CharTranslationsV view is only used for conversion of the single-byte characters in mixed single-byte/multibyte character sets. The table is not used for KANJISJIS.
