You use the HELP statements to view the attributes of a database object or session.

The output of HELP results usually are too wide to be shown on a single screen, and are sometimes wider than 132 characters. To adjust for this, you can format the output of your HELP reports using BTEQ formatting commands. For information about these formatting commands, see Basic Teradata® Query Reference, B035-2414.

Various examples of HELP queries are given in the following pages. The contents of HELP reports are explained in the following subsections.
