You must grant table access privileges to all views databases to allow the views within each database to access tables in the Tables database.

When table access privileges are granted to a Views database, the individual views inherit the right to access tables in the Tables database from the parent Views database.

Granting Table Access to Each Views Database

  1. Start BTEQ or Teradata Studio and log on as the database administrator user.
  2. Run the following requests:
    • For read-only Views databases:
      GRANT SELECT ON "Tables_Database" TO "database_name" WITH GRANT OPTION
    • For the updatable Views databases:
      GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE ON "Tables_Database" TO "database_name" WITH GRANT OPTION
