Someone asked me why would you use a volatile table over a global? I know there are differences:
* On a global you can collects statistics and create Secondary indices which you can't on a volatile.
* A global uses temporary space for the data and perm space for the structure and a volatile uses spool space.
* One global structure can be created and shared by many but a volatile can not.
Because of the differences I could give you several reasons to use a global over a volatile but assuming that there is a little perm space available for the global structure and temp space for the data, why would a volatile table be better to use than a global?
Thanks in Advance
