This section describes the SQL DML statements for temporal tables.

This material covers the syntax, rules, and other details that are specific to temporal table support.

All existing rules that apply to the corresponding non-temporal DML statements also apply to the statements here. For more information about these rules, see Teradata Vantage™ - SQL Data Manipulation Language, B035-1146.

DML statements that do not use the NONTEMPORAL qualifier are applied only to rows that are open in the transaction-time dimension.
To ensure application portability to ANSI standards for temporal SQL, Teradata recommends explicit specification of all temporal qualifiers.
