ODBC Driver for Teradata supports the Unicode Data Dictionary. It is a Unicode Driver that seamlessly supports both Unicode and ANSI applications.

ODBC Driver for Teradata communicates with Teradata Database using the following supported session character sets:
  • Unicode UTF8 and UTF16 session
  • Double-byte Chinese and Korean
  • EUC and SJIS double-byte Kanji and single-byte Katakana
  • ASCII and Latin session
  • Single byte Thai, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Turkish and Vietnam session

The following table contains a complete list of supported session character sets.

Unicode ODBC API plus Unicode session character sets combine to provide full support for Unicode applications. Unicode data flows from a Unicode ODBC application to the driver and onto Teradata Database without any loss of data due to conversions.
