The KANJI1 server character set is designed for Japanese applications that must remain compatible with Teradata Kanji data from Teradata Database releases prior to V2R3.0.

The semantics and limitations of KANJI1 are identical to those of the CHARACTER server character set in releases prior to V2R3.0.

In accordance with Teradata internationalization plans, KANJI1 support is deprecated and is to be discontinued in the near future. KANJI1 is not allowed as a default character set; the system changes the KANJI1 default character set to the UNICODE character set. Creation of new KANJI1 objects is highly restricted. Although many KANJI1 queries and applications may continue to operate, sites using KANJI1 should convert to another character set as soon as possible.
