An SQL DML request for which the full text of the DDL for all the database objects it references is to be returned.

System-defined join index definitions on a temporal table are not returned by a SHOW DML request. The base table definition text seen in the SHOW TABLE output on which the system-defined join index is created returns the temporal constraints that are implemented as system-defined single-table join indexes, and it is only when this CREATE TABLE SQL text is issued to Teradata Database that the system-defined join indexes, if any, are created.

Return the report in XML format.
The XML schema for the output produced by this option is maintained in:
Any view DDL returned is to be qualified by the appropriate database and table names. This qualified text is taken from the DBC.TVM.CreateText column.
All qualified objects in the report are enclosed within QUOTATION MARK characters.
If you do not specify QUALIFIED, then any returned view DDL is taken from the DBC.TVM.RequestText column and is not qualified by the names of the appropriate database and table names.
