I am trying to convert the follow block of SQL from SQL Server to Teradata.

When compiling the code in Teradata, I get the following error:
3654:  Corresponding select-list expressions are incompatible.

How can I edit this code in order for it to compile properly?  Thank you!
select	EXTRACT(year from sold_date) ,
	EXTRACT(month from sold_date) ,
	EXTRACT(year from sold_date)*100+EXTRACT(month from sold_date), 
	ca.loan_num,
	sold_date,
	NULL,
	NULL
from	cmrmkt cr,
	cmacct ca
where	sold_date >= '2007-08-01' 
and	cr.receivable_id = ca.receivable_id
and	ca.loan_num not in (select loan_num from lcnam)
UNION
select	EXTRACT(year from sold_date) ,
	EXTRACT(month from sold_date) ,
	EXTRACT(year from sold_date)*100+EXTRACT(month from sold_date), 
	ca.loan_num,
	sold_date,
	lcm.charge_off_date,
	lcm.charge_off_flag
from 	cmrmkt cr,
	cmacct ca,
	lcnam lcm
where 	sold_date >= '2007-08-01'
and 	cr.receivable_id = ca.receivable_id
and 	ca.loan_num = lcm.loan_num;

Do you mean get rid of the UNION and just do two INSERT INTO statements for each SELECT statement?

I mean, try switch these two parts each other, to allow server to know type of last two columns.

To solve this definitely, make explicit cast for all columns of both unions, to desired datatypes.
