The requirements for using client character sets vary by character set.

  • To use one of the four permanently enabled client character sets (ASCII, EBCDIC, UTF8, and UTF16), enable the character set as a client default. See System Determination of Client Character Set.
  • To use a Teradata standard client character set that is not permanently enabled:
  1. Enable the character set in the DBC.CharTranslationsV view. See Enabling a Client Character Set.
  2. Enable the character set as a client default. See System Determination of Client Character Set.
