Subj:   Re: Timestamp(6) with default value
From:   Pluebell, Fred

A TIMESTAMP literal value must be specified in the standard format 'YYYY-MM-DD hh:mi:ss.ssssss' regardless of the column format clause.

     create table test
        ( mytp     TIMESTAMP(6)   NOT NULL   FORMAT 'YYYY-MM-DD-HH.MI.SS.S(6)'
                                  DEFAULT TIMESTAMP '9999-12-31 01:01:01.000001'

Note that the FORMAT will only be applied when the database converts to/from a character string, e.g. in BTEQ field mode or when you explicitly CAST(mytp as CHAR(26)) in SQL Assistant, Teradata Studio, etc.
