Subj:   Finding the set/multiset property of a table in the data dictionary
From:   Dieter Capek

Hello forum,

Can you please advise how the data dictionary (e.g. dbc.tvm) shows if a table is set or multiset?

I am aware of a previous post on this issue at www.teradataforum.com/teradata/20000627_194101.htm and have tried to use tvm.checkopt without success.

Perhaps tvm.checkopt was a valid multiset table indicator in 2000 (when the mentioned post was written). A week ago I did check this and found multiset tables having both Y and N values on a TD Rel 5.0 system. My impression is that due to the lot of functionality added tvm.checkopt is not a valid indicator for the multiset property any longer.

I have tried

     SELECT dbase.DatabaseName,
            tvm.TVMName(NAMED TableName),
            tvm.Version(FORMAT 'zzzz(9)'),
            COALESCE(DB1.DatabaseName,DBC.tvm.CreatorName) (named CreatorName),
            substr( tvm.requesttext, 1,20 ),

     FROM DBC.tvm
          LEFT OUTER JOIN DBC.Dbase DB1
                       ON DBC.tvm.CreatorName = DB1.DatabaseNameI
          LEFT OUTER JOIN DBC.Dbase DB2
                       ON DBC.tvm.LastAlterUID = DB2.DatabaseID,

         WHERE tvm.DatabaseId = dbase.DatabaseId
           and tablekind = 'T';

Can you please advise a better approach?

Thank you!
