Inserting and Retrieving UDTs with Client Products

A UDT can only exist on the 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.
