There are different ways to decode a string column in Snowflake using UTF-8, depending on the specific scenario and requirements. Here is a general method that can be used:

  1. Identify the string column that requires decoding. This column may contain encoded characters such as ASCII or Latin-1.

  2. Use the UTF8_CONVERT function in Snowflake to convert the column values to UTF-8 format:

SELECT UTF8CONVERT(columnname) FROM table_name;

The UTF8_CONVERT function automatically detects the character encoding of the input string and converts it to UTF-8.

  1. Display the results of the query to verify the decoded values.

Note: It is important to ensure that the Snowflake session and database settings are configured to use UTF-8 encoding, in order to prevent issues with character encoding mismatches.
