First time poster; database USER, not administrator/programmer, so I am not nearly as much of an expert as the rest of you. However, I need help desperately.
I have Teradata 15, and was hoping to execute the greatest() function to return the maximum value across multiple columns. Unfortunately, even when I enter something simple like...
...I get the error "SELECT Failed.  Syntax error: expected something between '(' and the integer '1'."
I have done a LOT of searching online and cannot find a solution to this problem. Some of the information points to something called a "Database Initialization Program (DIP)", but I don't know what that is. The Teradata guide says that I can run it through the "Database Window", but that was not included in my installation and cannot find the place to download it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
