The following table shows examples of converting strings that use the UNICODE and LATIN server character sets to GRAPHIC data.

Function Result
VARGRAPHIC('92 abcΔ ') '92 abc Δ '
VARGRAPHIC('abc') 'abc '

Consider the following table definition with two character columns that use the KANJI1 server character set:

   CREATE TABLE t1 
     (c1 VARCHAR(12) CHARACTER SET KANJI1
     ,c2 VARCHAR(12) CHARACTER SET KANJI1);

Use the KanjiEBCDIC client character set and insert the following strings:

   INSERT t1 ('de
f', 'gH<ABC
>X
');

Convert the strings to GRAPHIC data:

Function Result
SELECT VARGRAPHIC (c1) FROM t1; 'def '
SELECT VARGRAPHIC (c2) FROM t1; 'gH ABCX '

(The single byte Hankaku Katakana X is converted to double byte X .)
