Creating proxy tables with the CREATE EXISTING TABLE statement

The CREATE EXISTING TABLE statement creates a proxy table that maps to an existing table on the remote server. SQL Anywhere derives the column attributes and index information from the object at the remote location.

To create a proxy table with the CREATE EXISTING TABLE statement (SQL)

  1. Connect to the host database as a user with DBA authority.

  2. Execute a CREATE EXISTING TABLE statement.

For more information, see CREATE EXISTING TABLE statement.

Example 1

To create a proxy table called p_Employees on the current server to a remote table named Employees on the server named RemoteSA, use the following syntax:

AT 'RemoteSA..GROUPO.Employees';
A proxy table called p_Employees is on the local server, and is mapped to the Employees table on the RemoteSA server.
Example 2

The following statement maps the proxy table a1 to the Microsoft Access file mydbfile.mdb. In this example, the AT keyword uses the semicolon (;) as a delimiter. The server defined for Microsoft Access is named access.

AT 'access;d:\mydbfile.mdb;;a1';
