Sets the active transform group for Complex Data Types (CDTs) that have multiple transform groups.

You can set transform groups for the following CDTs:
  • JSON
  • XML
  • ST_GEOMETRY
  • DATASET

The transform group you set is in effect for the current session. You can use this statement multiple times in a single session to switch transforms for the same CDT. If default transform groups are already set for the user, the SET TRANSFORM GROUP FOR TYPE statement overrides the default settings for the current session.

For information about CDTs, including macros you can use to display the current transform settings, see Teradata Vantage™ - JSON Data Type, B035-1150, Teradata Vantage™ - XML Data Type, B035-1140, Teradata Vantage™ - DATASET Data Type, B035-1198, and Teradata Vantage™ - Geospatial Data Types, B035-1181.
