Teradata TPump supports two forms of graphic constants. The graphic literal or string constant is allowed only in the kanji EBCDIC character sets. It must have an even number of bytes within the quoted string to represent double-byte characters.
The two forms of graphic constants are as follows.
- The kanjiEBCDIC graphic constant form (used for the IBM mainframe)
- The hexadecimal representation of graphic data (used for both the IBM mainframe and network platforms)
