Subj:   Re: Volatile table existence check

Volatile tables (V-table) are local to your session. If already there is a perm. table or a volatile table created with the same name that you are now trying to create it will fail. So creation of a volatile table should not fail unless there is already a permanent table (P-table) with that name existing or you already have instantiated a Global Temporary (G-table) or a v-table in your current session. One way to avoid V-table name clashing with the P-table is to stick with a convention to add a suffix or prefix to your V-table different than P-tables. Hope that helps.
