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

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.
