This section describes the user-defined type (UDT) data type.
For information about the VARIANT_TYPE UDT, see VARIANT_TYPE Data Type.

UDTs are ANSI SQL:2011 compliant.
To create a table that has a UDT column, you must have the UDTUSAGE, UDTTYPE, or UDTMETHOD privilege on the SYSUDTLIB database, or have the UDTUSAGE privilege on the specified UDT.
To perform a query on a UDT column, you must have the UDTUSAGE privilege on the specified UDT.
