The CODEPAGE system table can only be changed by the database system administrator. If another database user tries to change the table, the Loader terminates the operation with the following error: -25251: Code page to set (<code_page_name>) not found in system table SYSLOADER.CODEPAGE. All database users can read-access the entries in the CODEPAGE table.
