In SQL statements, a referenced table can be a base table, a derived table, a queue table, or a view. The semantics of derived tables and views are identical. For information about views, see Teradata Vantage™ - SQL Data Definition Language Syntax and Examples, B035-1144.

A derived table is obtained from one or more other tables as the result of a subquery.

This option enables the FROM clause to specify a spool made up of selected data from an underlying table set. The derived table is similar to a viewed table.

You can invoke a scalar UDF from any point in a derived table.

ANSI Compliance

Derived tables are ANSI SQL:2011-compliant.
