Subj:   Re: Format of timestamp in select
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

  I understand that I can break the field apart using SUBSTR, but I assumed it can be done with a simple format clause.  

Unfortunately, it can't. The period has a reserved meaning for Teradata, so you can format the time portion as 'HH:MI:SS.S(6)' but not as 'HH.MI.SS.S(6)'. Bummer!

Maybe you could get the DB2/MVS guys to change their ZPARM so it's the same as Teradata's default format. :-)

Actually, I believe the DB2 unload utility allows you to change the format of exported timestamps, so maybe that would be the best option.
