Subj:   Re: Soundex() and Latin Letters
From:   Watzke, Michael


  1) How do I detect these 'Non-Latin' Characters  

The error specifically means the characters are not a-z or A-Z, not non Latin. So numerics and punctuation will cause this error.

  2) How do I remove them from the string or better yet,  

  3) how do I get the best use of soundex()  

Probably the best thing to do is to ignore these non alpha characters when calculating the soundex code, I believe this is what the US census soundex generator does.

Unfortunately I don't know of a simple way to preprocess the string within a DML statement with current Teradata functions.
