SET and MULTSET table

table1 ia a multiset table.Using table1 , 2 tables are created using the following syntax:

1- CT table2 as (select * from table1) with no data;

2- CT table3 as table1 with no data;

table2 is SET table , while table3 is MULTISET table.

Why does teradata create different table types (SET and MULTISET) using the above create table syntax?

What's the mechanism followed?

Re: SET and MULTSET table

Table2 is SET table because is created from SELECT, and SET is the default in Teradata.

Table3 is MULTISET because is created from table1, which is MULTISET.
