Purpose

Declares an INTERVAL MINUTE value in an expression.

Syntax



sign
An optional minus sign to indicate a negative interval. The default is a positive interval.
Note that the sign must be outside the apostrophes that enclose string.
string
One to four digits representing the number of minutes. Spaces and new line characters are not allowed between the apostrophes.
Only digits within the apostrophes are parsed and converted to numeric. For example, '1.05' is treated as '105'.

ANSI Compliance

INTERVAL MINUTE literals are partly ANSI SQL:2011 compliant.

The ANSI definition places the optional sign for the interval within the apostrophes; the Teradata implementation places the optional sign outside the apostrophes.

Type

INTERVAL MINUTE

For details on the INTERVAL MINUTE type, see INTERVAL MINUTE Data Type.

Example: INTERVAL MINUTE Literal

This example adds an interval of 600 minutes to the current system time.

SELECT INTERVAL '600' MINUTE + CURRENT_TIME;
