Subj:   Re: Viewing of Data in tables which has CLOB/BLOB
From:   Victor Sokovin

  We have few tables in our Teradata Database which has columns > > with CLOB/BLOB data types.  

  I am able to fire the normal tables using SQL assistant but it is not supporting to see the data in the tables which has CLOB/BLOB  

  Can any one suggest the way to see the data in the Teradata tables which has CLOB/BLOB data types.  

You are probably on the older version of SQLA. I can't recall when exactly LOB support had been added but it should at least be available from version 7.0. Here is what you should have at the minimum:

"Large objects come in two types

Binary These columns may contain Pictures, Music, Word documents, etc. The column type used by different vendors may be any of " BLOB, IMAGE or LONG RAW.

Text These columns contain text data such as Text, HTML, XML or Rich Text (RTF)

The column type used by different vendors may be any of " CLOB, TEXT or LONG.

When an Answer set contains a Large Object (LOB) column Teradata SQL Assistant will ask you to provide a file name, a file type, and optionally, a directory for each Large Object column. Each LOB data value will be written to a separate file."

This is a quote from the SQLA Help.

Check your SQLA version and try to upgrade the Assistant.
