Subj:   Removing columns
 
From:   Ruth Fenwick

Just want to do a sanity check. I need to remove 3 columns of a 102G table, ~1.5 billion rows.

The PI is not changing so my plan was to just create a copy and do a mass insert select into an empty table, drop the old one and rename. Other than the massive DASD requirement, does anyone forsee a problem with this? Am I correct in assuming that this is the fastest method.
