Subj:   Re: 3706 Syntax error: Data Type does not match a Defined Type name
From:   Dieter Noeth

It is simple, but no SQL, at least no Teradata SQL :-)

It's ODBC SQL, just replace LENGTH with CHAR_LENGTH.

The ODBC driver will parse the SQL and replace all ODBC SQL function calls with valid Teradata SQL.

There's a section in the ODBC manual about supported ODBC SQL functions like LTRIM/LEFT. You're not supposed to use those, better replace it with valid Teradata SQL.

If you don't want to get similar errors, just switch it off in QueryMan:
Tools > Options -> Allow Use of ODBC SQL Extensions in Queries
