Subj:   Re: Timestamp data type
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

  I've had difficulty creating a (test) table with a column as a tempstamp data type. I eventually took a copy of the DDL of the DBC.TVM table (which has at least the column CreateTimeStamp as TIMESTAMP(0)), and after changing only the database and table name, created a look-alike. The resulting table looked like my earlier attempts; it makes the column a CHAR(23) !! Maybe there's something wrong with my setup...  

  My setup in this test case is:  

  Teradata: V2R. (on NT) Version - (these given in view DBCInfo)
QueryMan: 5.1.0

Sounds like a problem in your Queryman setup. Try creating the table from a Unix node with BTEQ. If that works, you probably have to do one or both of the following:

- In Queryman, under "Tools/Options", be sure the box "Allow use of ODBC SQL Extensions in queries" is CHECKED.

- In your ODBC Data Source, under "Options>>"/"Advanced", be sure the box "Disable Prepare for SQL with comments or parenthesis [sic]" is CHECKED.
