CHARACTER_LENGTH is the ANSI form of the Teradata CHARACTERS function. Use CHARACTER_LENGTH instead of CHARACTERS for ANSI SQL:2011 conformance.

Use CHARACTER_LENGTH in place of MCHARACTERS. (MCHARACTERS no longer appears in this book because its use is deprecated and it will not be supported after support for KANJI1 is dropped.)
