Subj:   Adding timestamp column via Alter statement with SQL Assistant
From:   Anomy Anom

Hi all,

We are facing an issue while modifying a table via ALTER statement.

I added two columns (defined as timestamp(6)) via ALTER statement on SQL Assistant.

     Alter table dgw.entry_service_person ADD creation_date_time TIMESTAMP(6)
     ,ADD last_update_date_time TIMESTAMP(6);

when I do show table I see definition of column as follows:

     creation_date_time CHAR(23),
     last_update_date_time CHAR(23)

however, when one of my colleague issued same statement on his system via SQL Assistant. following was added to table definition.

     creation_date_time TIMESTAMP(6),
     last_update_date_time TIMESTAMP(6))

which was correct and expected.

I am puzzled about why on my system this is not happenning. Could you please throw light on this?

we are on teradata VERSION, RELEASE

Thanks in advance.
