The DDL operator supports every SQL statement except statements that:

  • Return data to the operator, such as the SELECT, HELP, and SHOW statements.

    The CREATE REPLICATION GROUP statement is supported. The user needs the group id and/or the token after a replication group is created.

    The INSERT…SELECT statement is supported. It returns the total number of rows being inserted in the table.

  • Require the operator to send data back to the Teradata Database.

Because standalone operators do not send data to or retrieve data from data streams, the DDL operator does not support the USING clause with the INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE DML SQL statements.

The Stream operator and the Update operator automatically employ the USING clause where needed.

All data values used by the SQL statement used by the DDL operator must be hard-coded into the submitted SQL statements.
