Using the SQL language

When you use the SQL language in applications that you intend to localize to multiple locales, the following considerations might help you:
*The unit of length when working with character strings
*The maximum number of bytes required by items of type CHAR and VARCHAR
*SQL elements that support internationalization and localization
*Format specifiers allowed with the TO_CHAR() and TO_DATE() functions
For a complete list of the international elements in OpenEdge SQL, see OpenEdge Resources. For a complete description of the OpenEdge SQL language, see OpenEdge Data Management: SQL Development.
