The following applies when copying an entire database:
  • You can copy all tables and views from a source to a target database using Teradata DSA.
  • If copying a table that already exists on the target, the target table is overwritten. If the target database contains tables that do not exist on the source or the tables are not being copied, those tables are maintained on the target.
