Subj:   Calculate TIMESTAMP difference


I'm trying to find a way to calculate the time difference. For example, in a stored procedure, I've defined as following.

     DECLARE ctime = TIMESTAMP(6);

     DELETE FROM table WHERE (INTERVAL '30' SECOND < ctime - c);

The definition for table is following. It's defined in the BTEQ file (Outside of stored procedure)

     CREATE TABLE table(
       a INTEGER,
       c TIMESTAMP(6)

As you can see, the purpose of DELETE clause is to delete the row which is more than 30 seconds old.

For some reason, I get a compile error in DELETE statement.

Please help me finding the solution.

Thank you.
