COMMENT (Comment Placing Form)

Typical Use for COMMENT

The COMMENT statement is typically used in conjunction with a CREATE statement (except for index creating statements) to document one of the following:

  • A newly created database object.
  • A definition for one of the following:
  • Method (UDM)
  • User‑defined data type (UDT)
  • Note that you cannot place comments on indexes, so you cannot use this statement to place comment strings on hash, join, or secondary indexes.
