"CONTAINS" opertator

New to Teradata.  Does teradata use the "CONTAINS" operator?

If so are there additional information concerning this operator in relation to properly setting up indexs?

Re: "CONTAINS" opertator

For questions about functions and operators, you should refer to the Teradata Database SQL Reference volume "SQL Functions, Operators, Expressions, and Predicates". All Teradata documentation is available from www.info.teradata.com.

Teradata has a CONTAINS operator which evaluates whether one temporal or period expression contains another temporal or period expression.

You may be referring to a different kind of CONTAINS operator, such as Oracle Text's CONTAINS function, which is somewhat comparable to a LIKE predicate.
