GRAPHIC supports multibyte characters from the defined Graphic repertoire of the following character sets:

  • KanjiEUC_0U

Characters stored as type GRAPHIC cannot be any of the following:

GRAPHIC data is encoded as Unicode. Because of this, GRAPHIC data from Teradata Database releases prior to V2R3.0 must be migrated to the V2R3.0 server character set.
