Inserting and Retrieving UDTs with Client Products
A UDT can only exist on Teradata Database server. Each UDT has an associated “from-sql
routine” and “to-sql routine”.
Insert - The “to-sql routine” constructs a UDT value from a pre-defined type value.
The “to-sql routine” is automatically invoked when inserting values from a client
system into a UDT on the Teradata Database server.
Retrieve - The “from-sql routine” generates a pre-defined type value from a UDT. The
“from-sql routine” is automatically invoked when a UDT is retrieved from the Teradata
Database server to a client system.
