Subj:   3706: Syntax error: expected something between ')' and '+'
 
From:   LEWIS, JOHN

Receiving the following error when using COALESCE with an arithmetic operator:

     SELECT
        (coalesce(cnt_2_9, 0) + coalesce(cnt_30_59, 0) +
     coalesce(cnt_60_210, 0)) AS TOTAL,
        CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
     FROM table_a;

According the Teradata manual, the following should work but does not:

     SELECT COALESCE(100,0) * 100;

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

John
