Subj:   Re: String length function
 
From:   Victor Sokovin

  Just so you know, LENGTH is *not* a Teradata function. If you run these queries form BTEQ, you'll get a syntax error. It's actually an ODBC function which is mapped by the driver to CHARACTER_LENGTH. Run a 'select length(user);' from Queryman and look at the column heading.  



My Queryman and the ODBC driver return

     Characters(User)
     7

That would rather suggest that they convert LENGTH to CHARACTERS. I must admit I did not experience any problems with the conversion so far and I am quite used to LENGTH.

You are right about the BTEQ syntax, though.


Regards,

Victor
