To determine characters that are valid in object names:

1 Find the text file on the documentation CD or on the Web at http://www.info.teradata.com/ that maps the client character set to UNICODE.

2 In the text file, find the Unicode character to which the client character in question maps.

3 Find the file, UOBJNEXT.txt, that lists the Unicode characters valid in object names. The file is available on the Teradata User Documentation CD and at http://www.info.teradata.com.

4 If the Unicode character appears in the file that is applicable to your system, you can use the client character that maps to it in an object name.
