Period Data Type Usage

Both temporal and nontemporal tables support Period data types and literals.

With respect to temporal tables:

  • transaction-time columns must have a data type of PERIOD(TIMESTAMP(6) WITH TIME ZONE).
  • Valid-time columns can have a data type of PERIOD(DATE), PERIOD(TIMESTAMP[(n)]), or PERIOD(TIMESTAMP[(n)] WITH TIME ZONE).
  • For more information on Period and DateTime data types, see SQL Data Types and Literals.
