Subj:   Valid trailing spaces in key values

We are trying to convert data from Oracle to Teradata. There is a key column in Oracle that has trailing spaces that are valid spaces for the key value. For example:

'abc ' is different from 'abc'. We can not load into a character field because it will add trailing spaces and the value of 'abc ' (three tailing spaces) will be different than 'abc ' (five tailing spaces). If we define as varchar, the trailing spaces are removed.

Does anyone have a work around for this problem?
