Teradata Equivalent to ORACLE UNPIVOT Command

Teradata Equivalent to ORACLE UNPIVOT Command

Hello Teradata Experts,

The following query was posted in the Teradata Forum back in 2010, but it didn't receive any replies. I am attempting to do exactly the same thing as part of a large Data Conversion Exercise (25 Tables, 40 Columns per Table). If it could also be done using a Stored Procedure - that would be ideal. Let's assume that I only know the name of the KEY Column - but not any of the others. Note that I do not want to use UNION ALL.

To convert the columns to rows , I was trying UNPIVOT in Oracle 11g like given below

KEY C1 C2 C3
--- ----- ----- -----
r1 v1 v2 v3
r2 v1 v2
r3 v1 v3
r4 v1
r5 v2 v3
r6 v2
r7 v3

select key, source, val
( C1 AS 'C1',
C2 AS 'C2',
C3 AS 'C3'
order by key, source ;

Do we have any function in Teradata like UNPIVOT to achieve the same results ( without using union all) ?
