SELECT TOP 1000 ...

Depends. If FROM a table or simple single-table view and you have no ORDER BY / GROUP BY / etc., then Teradata can retrieve any 1000 rows without using spool first.

But if there is any join, sort, aggregation, stat function (either in the query itself or within a referenced view) then Teradata will likely materialize the entire answer set in spool before selecting and returning the "TOP" rows.
