You can define the source of export widths for a user with the CREATE USER or MODIFY USER statement, for example:

CREATE USER username
...
EXPORTWIDTH =  ‘export_width_definition_name’;
where export_width_definition_name can be:
  • One of the standard export width tables used for DBSControl settings:
    • EXPECTED
    • COMPATIBILITY
    • MAXIMUM
  • DEFAULT (defers to the current DBSControl global setting)
  • A custom ExportDefinitionName name. See Creating a Custom Export Width Definition.

See “CREATE USER” in Teradata Vantage™ SQL Data Definition Language Syntax and Examples, B035-1144.
