To change the default output format of the CURRENT_TIME result, use Teradata explicit conversion syntax and specify the FORMAT phrase. For example, the following statement requests the current time and specifies a format that is different from the default:

   SELECT CURRENT_TIME (FORMAT 'HH:MIBT');

The result looks like this:

   Current Time(0)
   ---------------
          02:29 PM
