Extended support allows you to customize Teradata Database to provide additional support for local character set usage.
A sufficiently privileged user can create single-byte and multibyte client character sets that support, with certain constraints, any subset of the Unicode repertoire. Moreover, such a user can customize a collation for the entire Unicode repertoire.
Extended support is available on systems that have been enabled with standard language support or Japanese language support.
