Is PK concept available in Teradata. If it is how can we create Primary Key for a table in TD..

Answer / rahul

hi,
primary keys are not mandatory in the teradata,but when
we are specify the pk in column the optimizer creates the
upi in that column. and more over pk composite have no limit
in teradata. the creation of pk is combination of primary
key and not null see the example

create set/multiset table <table name>
(
orderid integer primary key not null,
---
----- etc
);

this creates upi on the orderid column.

if we doesn't mentioned nupi will be created..

thanks

Rahul

PK is a logical concept and not mandatory in TD. But PI is
mandatory as the distribution of data is completely
dependent on PI. Choice of PI is very important and can
contain upto 16 columns.
