How to handle %rowtype(oracle) in teradata

A SAMPLE CODE IS GIVEN.

DECLARE
Emp_row Emp_tab%ROWTYPE; /* declare a record matching a row in the Emp_tab table*/

Any idea how to implement this in Teradata

Re: How to handle %rowtype(oracle) in teradata

Both %TYPE and %ROWTYPE are used to define variables in PL/SQL as it is defined within the database. If the datatype or precision of a column changes, the program automically picks up the new definition from the database without having to make any code changes.

The %TYPE and %ROWTYPE constructs provide data independence, reduces maintenance costs, and allows programs to adapt as the database changes to meet new business needs.
**************
%TYPE
**************
%TYPE is used to declare a field with the same type as that of a specified table's column.
Example:
DECLARE
v_EmpName emp.ename%TYPE;
BEGIN
SELECT ename INTO v_EmpName FROM emp WHERE ROWNUM = 1;
DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('Name = ' || v_EmpName);
END;
/
*************
%ROWTYPE
*************
%ROWTYPE is used to declare a record with the same types as found in the specified database table, view or cursor.
Examples:

DECLARE
v_emp emp%ROWTYPE;
BEGIN
v_emp.empno := 10;
v_emp.ename := 'XXXXXXX';
END;
/
Teradata should provide some way to do that
