Performing an implicit data type conversion requires that an appropriate cast definition (see Usage Notes) exists that specifies the AS ASSIGNMENT clause.
If no UDT-to-TIME implicit cast definition exists, Vantage looks for a UDT-to-CHAR or UDT-to-VARCHAR cast definition that can substitute for the UDT-to-TIME implicit cast definition. Substitutions are valid because SQL Engine can use the implicit cast definition to cast the UDT to a character data type, and then implicitly cast the character data type to a DATE type. If multiple UDT-to-character implicit cast definitions exist, then SQL Engine returns an SQL error.
