You can specify an existing contiguous or sparse map as the default map for the profile.

You must have been granted the specified map unless the map is the same as the default map of the profile creator.

map_name
Name of an existing contiguous or sparse map.
You cannot specify TD_DataDictonaryMap or TD_GlobalMap.
To specify a sparse map as the default map, you must be in the same secure zone as the sparse map and the sparse map must be in the same secure zone as the profile.
OVERRIDE ON ERROR
Use the default map if an error occurs when the MAP clause is specified for a CREATE TABLE, CREATE JOIN INDEX, or CREATE HASH INDEX statement. For example, if the MAP clause specifies a nonexistent contiguous map or a sparse map in another secure zone, a warning message displays. The message indicates that the specified map was not used and lists the name of the default map used instead.
This is the default.
OVERRIDE NOT ON ERROR
Do not use the default map if an error occurs when the MAP clause is specified for a CREATE TABLE, CREATE JOIN INDEX, or CREATE HASH INDEX statement.
NULL
A default map is not associated with the database.
