sql question - mixed case

sql question - mixed case

sql question - mixed case

I am trying to execute a sql:

SELECT * FROM table1
WHERE first_name = 'John'

This returns a record even when the data (column first_name) stored in the database is in upper case. Does Teradata ignore the case of strings?

RE: sql question - mixed case

Not sure of your specific needs, but this might be what you're looking for:

SELECT * FROM table1
WHERE first_name(casespecific) = 'John';

The other option is to set up the column to be casespecific when you initially create the table:

   first_name VARCHAR(20) CASESPECIFIC

Hope this helps!
