The following queries return the current date at the time zone displacement based on the time zone string, 'America Pacific'. Teradata Database determines the time zone displacement based on the time zone string and the CURRENT_TIMESTAMP AT '00:00' (that is, at UTC). The date returned is automatically adjusted to account for the start and end of daylight saving time.

   SELECT CURRENT_DATE AT TIME ZONE 'America Pacific';
   SELECT CURRENT_DATE AT 'America Pacific';
