The following example creates a system-time table and includes the system versioning clause, which is required to make the table a temporal table.

CREATE MULTISET TABLE employee_system_time (
 eid INTEGER NOT NULL,
 name VARCHAR(10)NOT NULL,
 deptno INTEGER NOT NULL,
 sys_start TIMESTAMP(6) WITH TIME ZONE NOT NULL 
           GENERATED ALWAYS AS ROW START,
 sys_end TIMESTAMP(6) WITH TIME ZONE NOT NULL 
           GENERATED ALWAYS AS ROW END,
 PERIOD FOR SYSTEM_TIME(sys_start, sys_end)
 )
 PRIMARY INDEX (eid) WITH SYSTEM VERSIONING;
