You can execute SQL function calls from external procedures using either of the following languages and APIs.

FOR an external routine written in this language … You can use this API to execute SQL calls …
  • C
  • C++

This does not mean that you can embed SQL statements within an external procedure, only that you can use standard CLIv2 or JDBC function calls to the appropriate driver, which then translates those calls into SQL requests and submits them to the Parser for processing.

Teradata Database does not support SQL function calls for mainframe-attached systems.

See Teradata® Call-Level Interface Version 2 Reference for Workstation-Attached Systems, B035-2418 or Teradata JDBC Driver Reference, available at https://developer.teradata.com/connectivity/reference/jdbc-driver , for information about the available SQL function calls.
