Extended Object Names (EON)

ODBC Driver for Teradata® User Guide

ODBC Driver for Teradata
User Guide

Object names include User, Database, Table, View, Macro, Column names, and many more. Teradata Database 14.10 extends object names up to 128 characters and contains an extended variety of characters, which includes almost all Unicode characters supported by Teradata database, except pass-through characters. Additionally, object names may be represented using the Unicode delimited identifier notation in different contexts.

User name, password, account string, and default database names can be used with both the extended length and the extended set of characters in the connection string. The configuration dialogs and the odbc.ini settings support the extended length and the same character set as earlier releases of the ODBC driver.
