Field Notes

The MultipartIndicData Field contains a formatted record of data:

  • The order of the items and their data types and lengths are determined by the USING row descriptor in the Teradata SQL statement.
  • The values of the items are represented in a client internal format. See Data Type.
  • A null value is implicitly indicated by a specific value of the item (for details, see “Manipulating Nulls” in SQL Fundamentals [B035-1141]) and that value is not necessarily unique to null. For explicit, unique indications of null values, use Indicator Mode or Field Mode.
