User Guide

KANJI932_1S0 character set is based on Windows Code Page 932. It emulates the Shift-JIS style of mixed single- and multibyte character data, where the range of the first byte in a character determines if the character is represented as one byte or two bytes.

The KANJI932_1S0 character set includes all the characters in the JIS X 0201 and JIS X 0208 standards, plus extensions. Supported characters include single-byte Hankaku Katakana characters and multibyte Kanji characters.

The character mapping tables are described in the following text files, which are available on CD and on the Web at http://www.info.teradata.com/.


File Name (on CD)

Title (on the Web)



KANJI932_1S0 Single Byte to Unicode

Maps KANJI932 to Unicode.


KANJI932_1S0 Multibyte to Unicode

Maps the multibyte character portion of KANJI932 to Unicode.

Object names on systems enabled with Japanese language support can contain single-byte Latin and Katakana characters from the JIS X 0201 standard, and double-byte characters from the JIS X 0208 standard.

The valid ranges for JIS X 0201 and JIS X 0208 characters in KANJI932_1S0 object names appear in “Shift-JIS Encoding” on page 165. Characters in the reserved regions of the JIS X 0208 standard are not allowed.

Gaiji characters with first byte values 0xF0-0xF9 and IBM characters with first byte values 0xFA-0xFC are not allowed in object names. Additionally, some characters that are valid in JIS X 0208 do not map to the KanjiEBCDIC encoding and are not valid in KANJI932_1S0 object names. The following table provides a complete list of multibyte character codes that are not valid for object names under the KANJI932_1S0 character set.
