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.
explain create TABLE db832.table1_xxx /*** would like to use a subset of columns from complex_view ***/ AS db832.complex_view WITH NO DATA ;
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.
