Sometimes you may need to convert an integer value to an Unicode character in MS SQL Server. There is a function called
NCHAR in MS SQL Server by which you can do this.
NCHAR function returns an Unicode character with a specified integer value, as defined by the Unicode standard.
Let’s see the function syntax:
In this syntax:
- In this function there is one parameters of integer_expression.
- Parameter integer_expressionis is an integer from 0 through 65535 (0 through 0xFFFF).
- Parameter integer_expressioncan be a constant, variable, or column.
NCHAR returns a
NULL value for integer expressions outside this range.
- Function returns a Unicode character of the value of integer_expression.
The following example uses
NCHAR function to convert an integer value to an Unicode character.
SELECT NCHAR(2534) AS bd_0, NCHAR(2543) AS bd_9;
Here is the result set.
