The UDTTransformsOff flag in the Options parcel indicates if UDTs are returned from the server in transformed or untransformed mode.

The UDTTransformsOff flag is stored in pcloptlist_t (pcltoteq.h).

UDTs must have transforms defined on them to be completely functional. Transforms are necessary for Teradata utilities to operate correctly.

Values

Value Description
Y UDTs are returned from the server in untransformed mode.
N Default.

UDTs are returned from the server in transformed mode.

If the flag is a binary zero, it is treated as if the flag was set to N.

If no Options parcel is sent with an application request, the server assumes the flag was set to N.

See Transforms Off and Period Data Type Support for more information on setting these values.
