You can use the ALTER TABLE statement with time series tables. For complete information about ALTER TABLE syntax, see Teradata Vantageā„¢ - SQL Data Definition Language Syntax and Examples, B035-1144.

You cannot use the following ALTER TABLE options on time series tables:
  • ALTER TABLE MODIFY PRIMARY
  • ALTER TABLE FROM TIME ZONE
  • ALTER TABLE SET or RESET DOWN
  • ALTER TABLE TO CURRENT

However, you can use an ALTER TABLE MODIFY PRIMARY statement to add a name or drop an existing name for PRIMARY TIME INDEX.
