We currently have an auditor using TD to select row samples. I have some "opinions" on the way sampling works, but no authoritative information. Given that we are currently on V2R3 and have no RANDOM function, does TD:
1. Move all rows into spool before selecting the sample?
2. Use (a). some internal random sampling algorithm or (b). simply select each nth record given the whole population/sample size ratio to create the sample from the spool?
3. Can anyone identify the "published" technique TD uses for sample selection by name or formula?
