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 the Usage Notes for the DATEFORM command.
