To change the default output format of the CURRENT_TIMESTAMP result, use Teradata explicit conversion syntax and specify the FORMAT phrase. For example, the following statement requests the current timestamp and specifies a format that is different from the default:

   SELECT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP (FORMAT 'MMMBDD,BYYYYBHH:MIBT');

The result looks like this:

    Current TimeStamp(6)
