Subj:   Re: Working with duplicate rows
From:   frank.c.martinez


Is there a BUSINESS reason to care about the duplicate rows? Multiset tables are worse than useless, unless you're trying to avoid the duplicate row check on a load (thereby saving load time). And designing for LOAD is usually a bad business decision. But Teradata had to add it so that people could have their duplicate rows, in order to feel more secure at night (personally, I prefer a Teddy Bear. Or my wife.) We have a 20+ terabyte warehouse and nary a multiset table in the bunch.

Ok, rant over.
