Literals

Literals are numbers or strings used in SQL as constants. Literals are included in the select-list, along with expressions and built-in functions and can also be constants.

Vertica provides support for number-type literals (integers and numerics), string literals, VARBINARY string literals, and date/time literals. The various string literal formats are discussed in this section.
