A string is a sequence of characters up to 2 GB in size. A string can occur in SQL:
The length of a string can be measured in two ways:
Byte length The byte length is the number of bytes in the string.
Character length The character length is the number of characters in the string, and is based on the character set being used.
For single-byte character sets, such as cp1252, the byte-length and character-length are the same. For multibyte character sets, a string's byte-length is greater than or equal to its character-length.
