Because the Session ID and Creator Name are identical for all volatile tables created within a given session, these attributes are not provided in the HELP VOLATILE TABLE report. Similarly, you can obtain information for the following volatile table attributes by performing a SHOW TABLE statement (see SHOW object).
  • Protection
  • Commit Option
  • Transaction Log Option
  Data Type Nullable Description
Table Name VARCHAR(30) No The name of the volatile table.
Table ID CHAR(16) No The internal system-assigned identifier for the table.
Table Dictionary Name VARCHAR(128) No The attributes shown in this section are based upon and supersede the corresponding older Table Name attribute, while providing additional functionality.
