Re: How to determine the character-set of a Teradata Database?

There can be multiple internal (server) and external (client) character sets in use at the same time. If you are referring to the character set used to store names of objects in dictionary tables, that would generally be Teradata LATIN unless you chose Japanese KANJI1 instead at SysInit.

Check the International Character Set Support manual for more information.
