Determining the default collation

A collation describes how to sort and compare characters from a particular character set or encoding. If you do not explicitly specify a collation when creating a database a default collation is used, depending on the operating system.


There are no prerequisites for this task.

  1. Connect to the database.

  2. Execute the following statement:

    SELECT PROPERTY( 'DefaultCollation' );


The default collation for the database is returned.
