Subj:   Re: Question about where in dbc volatile tables are
From:   John_Wight

Don't believe you'll find any reference to Volatile table definitions in DBC tables. There is no DD/DS definition - they only exist for the user (TEMP SPACE) for the session they're created in. You are referring to VOLATILE TEMPORARY tables - right?

Any user that has TEMP space assigned to their userid can create a VOLATILE TEMPORARY table - but as soon as that session ends - it will disappear. Even for the time it was materialized for - there is no DD/DS entry - it's all memory!

Hope this helps.
