The internal and external representations of distinct UDTs are indicated in the following table:

FOR this type of representation … A distinct UDT is stored in the following format:
internal the same as its underlying predefined data type.
client the same as its underlying predefined data type.

This is handled by the system-generated transform for the UDT that is created when the distinct UDT is created.

See the appropriate Teradata Tools and Utilities documentation for details of how a particular client application deals with distinct UDTs.
