Chapter 8, “Teradata SQL Syntax Guide,”provides, in alphabetical order, details of the main SQL statements. Each description contains a brief explanation of the command function, syntax, usage notes, and one or more examples of how the command is used.

Chapter 9, “Advanced SQL,”describes a few more advanced Teradata SQL features such as transaction semantics, the SQL flagger, correlated subqueries, referential integrity, EXPLAIN examples, and updatable cursors.

Appendix A, “Teradata SQL Keywords,”lists the Teradata SQL keywords reserved for use in SQL statements.

Appendix B, “Teradata SQL Versus ANSI SQL,”lists the Teradata RDBMS SQL syntax alphabetically and notes which are Entry Level, Intermediate Level, or Full ANSI, and which are Teradata extensions to ANSI. Also listed is a comparative chart of keywords and future keywords.

Appendix C, “Comparing Teradata SQL and DB2,”describes similarities and differences between Teradata SQL and DB2. It includes a description of new features in DB2 Version 2 Release 2.0 and 3.0, Version 3, and Version 4. DB2 extensions not supported by Teradata SQL, and Teradata SQL extensions not supported by DB2, are outlined, as well as a comparison of reserved words.

Appendix D, “Sample Personnel Database,”includes the SQL syntax used to create the sample Personnel database tables, along with some sample data listings in each table.

Appendix E, “ASCII Hexadecimal Translation Tables,”lists hexadecimal code used to translate standard English language characters to and from EBCDIC to ASCII
