Subj:   Variable name for a new or existing table?
 
From:   Farseth, Paul

Is it possible in Teradata SQL to retrieve a variable name for a table to be read from (or to be created) and then dynamically use that table name in a string of SQL instructions?

What I'd like to be able to do is select a table name from a parameters table and then use that name in a query to create a new version of a table with that name or to select data from a table of that name. A variant of this kind of procedure would be to use some other string of retrieved data from a source table or a current_date function to make up the character string in a SQL query that dropped or created a table named by that computed character string.


Thanks,
