Purpose

Temporal Table Support describes the concepts fundamental to understanding Teradata Database support for temporal (time-aware) tables and data. This manual includes SQL language reference material and examples specific to the practical creation and manipulation of temporal tables.

Release 15.0 of Teradata Database introduces ANSI/ISO compatible temporal tables and syntax, which are different in several respects from the temporal tables and syntax described in this book. For more information on ANSI-compatible temporal tables, see Appendix E: “ANSI Temporal Tables” and the ANSI Temporal Table Syntax manual.
