partitioning on DATE or TIMESTAMP

Hi,

I was suggested by DBA to change in one of tables , the partitioning column from timestamp to date.

In explain plan I can see that in both cases partition prunning takes place.

Is there anybody that is master in partitioning in teradata and can help if there is some logical reasoning for such change ?

Regards,

Piotr
