Demographics

Select the Demographics check box to export information about tables (demographic data). Demographics can only be captured and imported when a QCD is specified during an export operation. Captured demographics are collected in the specified QCD. To export demographics information in addition to the information exported when All is selected, select the Demographics check box.

Depending on the type of export operation performed, this feature either captures demographics of the tables and indexes referenced in a query or samples of all of the tables in a given database.

To change the demographics export options

1 From an export dialog box, click Options.

The Export Options dialog box appears. By default, the Demographics Source box displays the name of the active QCD.

2 Click Select Tables.

The Export Demographics dialog box appears and displays a list of the tables selected for export.

3 Define the way that demographics are exported.
