Hi Wang,

As many of the gurus have replied, it's not possible to compress timestamp for any value other than NULL.

But if you are having both a start and end timestamp, then you can use PERIOD datatype (from Teradata 13.0 onwards). This will help to reduce the space usage. For details, please have a look here.
