Identifying bad datatypes which occupy more space

Hi Guys,

I was wondering if there is a way to Identify bad datatypes which occupy more space in our datawarehouse so that I can modify the datatype for some space savings. I found a discussion on the same topic, but couldn't find the Knowledge article referred in the discussion.

Thanks,
Jojo

Hey Jojo,
 
The knowledgebase article referenced is an internal Teradata document accessible by any Teradata PS Consultant.
 
Have one of your onsite consultants grab it and then reach out to me again and I will be happy to assist.
 
Thanks
