the default as given in the documentation is that SAS $n variables become Teradata datatype CHAR(n).
Please can we have a way to change the default to VARCHAR(n)
For the history of this idea, see the article at change default when writing from SAS into Teradata
This policy proposal could apply to any/all RDBMS supported by SAS/Access
Changing the default data type mapping would be helpful for other data types as well, date, datetime, int/float etc.
