TeraData EXPLAIN Command

The EXPLAIN command is a powerful tool provided with the Teradata database. It is designed to provide an English explanation of what steps the AMP must complete to satisfy the SQL request. The EXPLAIN is based on the PE's execution plan.

The Teradata Database offers several types of help using an interactive client.
There are times when you need to recreate a table, view, or macro that you already have, or you need to create another object of the same type that is either identical or very similar to an object that is already created. When this is the case, the SHOW command is a way to accomplish what you need.
