ANSI/SQL DateTime Specifications

The ANSI/SQL DATE, TIME, TIMESTAMP and INTERVAL DateTime data types in Teradata SQL CREATE TABLE statements, can be used. Specify them as column/field modifiers in INSERT statements. However, certain restrictions should be noted:

  • ANSI/SQL DateTime data types cannot be used when specifying the column/field names in a DEFINE command.
  • ANSI/SQL DateTime data types must be converted to fixed‑length CHAR data types when specifying the column/field names in the DEFINE command.
  • For a description of the fixed‑length CHAR representations for each DATE, TIME, TIMESTAMP and INTERVAL data type specification, see Table 27 on page 96.
