Subj:   Re: Insert data into table
From:   John K. Wight

Multiset tables are very useful in ETL processes in staging area when you are doing INSERT/SELECTs into empty tables whilst performing transformations. Another way is to use Multiset tables, but apply a USI to the (logical) PK columns. Although there is the overhead of keeping the updated USI, this is probably best when doing delta updates and NOT big INSERT/SELECTS. I've even put BIG tables into production using Multiset and it works fine - BECAUSE I KNOW that my rows are unique from my ETL processes!
