You can submit an SQL request to access the data in a system view and display or print the results.

For example:

   WHERE UserName = ’ALL’;

Note: If an SQL request returns a security violation error, a reference to the alternate version of the view name may yield results. If neither version is available, use the HELP statement to inquire about individual objects. If this is not adequate, consult with the Teradata Database administrator.

The following sections show various methods for retrieving directory information.

For a description of several common administrative uses of the information in Data Dictionary views, see the topics starting with “Tracking Resource Usage” on page 26.
