To change the Teradata standard MULTINATIONAL collation to the standard Swedish or Norwegian collation, perform the following procedure:

  1. Log on to a BTEQ session as user SYSADMIN or user DBC.
  2. Execute the DBC.CollInstallMulti macro, specifying the desired standard as the CollationName parameter for the macro.

    For example, any of the following:

    EXECUTE DBC.CollInstallMulti (‘NORWEGIAN_STANDARD’);
    EXECUTE DBC.CollInstallMulti (‘SWEDISH_STANDARD’);
    EXECUTE DBC.CollInstallMulti (‘KANJI5026_STANDARD’);
    EXECUTE DBC.CollInstallMulti (‘KANJI5035_STANDARD’);
    EXECUTE DBC.CollInstallMulti (‘KATAKANA_STANDARD’);
  3. On the Command Line of the Database Window of the system console, enter the restart tpa command to restart the Teradata Database.

    During restart processing, the Teradata Database displays a message indicating whether the specified collation was installed.
