This example creates user_name with a default time zone displacement defined by the text string 'America Pacific'. When user_name is created, Vantage passes the time zone string to a system-defined UDF that validates it. The UDF is also called to retrieve the rules associated with the time zone string whenever user_name logs on.

If the value of the time_zone_string you specify is not valid, the system returns an error to the requestor.

     CREATE USER user_name 
     FROM r_n_d AS
     PERMANENT = 1000000,
     PASSWORD = abbub279,
     SPOOL = 1200000,
     FALLBACK PROTECTION,
     DUAL AFTER JOURNAL,
     DEFAULT JOURNAL TABLE = r_n_d.journals,
     DEFAULT DATABASE = r_n_d,
     STARTUP = 'EXEC setpf;'
     ACCOUNT = '$mr_n_d','$hr_n_d',
     TIME ZONE = 'America Pacific';
