The following CREATE TABLE statement specifies a FORMAT phrase for the TIME data type column:

CREATE SET TABLE timetab (f1 TIME(0) FORMAT 'TBHHhMImSSs');

In field mode, the following INSERT statement successfully performs the character to TIME implicit conversion because the format of the string conforms to the format of the TIME column in the timetab table:

INSERT INTO timetab ('AM 10h20m30s');

In record or indicator mode, the following INSERT statement successfully performs the character to TIME implicit conversion because the format of the string is in the ANSI TIME format:

INSERT timetab ('11:23:34');
