15.00 - Chapter 5 SQL Data Manipulation Language (Temporal Forms) - Teradata Database

Teradata Database Temporal Table Support

Teradata Database
Programming Reference

This chapter describes the SQL DML statements for temporal tables.

The material in this chapter covers the syntax, rules, and other details that are specific to temporal table support.

The existing rules that apply to conventional DML statements also apply to the statements in this chapter and are not repeated here. For more information on conventional, DML statements, see SQL Data Manipulation Language.

Note: DML statements that do not use the NONTEMPORAL qualifier are applied only to rows that are open in the transaction-time dimension.

Note: To ensure application portability to future ANSI standards for temporal SQL, Teradata recommends explicit specification of all temporal qualifiers.
