Two MODIFY requests are required to change a default journal table that resides in the user space being modified.

  1. The first request drops the present journal table from Teradata Database.
  2. After the table is dropped, a second request is required to define a new default journal table.

Teradata Database aborts the request and returns an error message to the requestor if the journal table is being used by active data tables.
