Subj:   Create a Table sourced from a complex view
From:   Anomy Anom

Hi. Is the logical approach below do-able in the Teradata world?

Task: create a table that includes a subset of columns from a complex view.

One of the virtual columns in the view is formed by casting a few numbers that are then concatenated into a CHAR (20) attribute.

Trying the SQL below returns an (expected) error message that the complex view is not a table.


     create TABLE  db832.table1_xxx   /*** would like to use a subset of
     columns from complex_view ***/
     AS db832.complex_view

The CREATE TABLE AS fails; and the error message reports accurately that he complex-view is not a table.

Any way around this?

If it is possible to trick Teradata into accepting the view as the source for table creation, is it possible to select a subset of the columns for the table definition.

It is only Tuesday on a short week, so I am hopeful that something exists out there.

Thanks in advance your help.
