Subj:   Re: Use of Insert/Select Versus Fastload
 
From:   David Wellman

Hi,

Whoever told you that ?

If you're going to populate an empty table - which is presumably what is happening here as you imply that the users are doing the Create followed by the insert - then I'd say that you've got exactly the method already.

If the target table is NOT empty, then Multiload becomes a viable alternative simply because you avoid the potentially long roll back if things go wrong and the transaction aborts.


Cheers,

Dave
