Subj:   Re: Compressing Byte Columns
From:   Geoffrey Rommel

  I've got numerous columns defined as byte(10), however the majority of them hold just binary zeroes so I'd like to add a compress clause in my create table statement. Can anyone advise how to define such a byte constant?  

You betcha.

my_column byte(10) compress '00000000000000000000'xb
