Hi, I am trying to use this query to get the names of all tables in DD that begins with 'TEMP%' (say) I am a user and have select privileges to the main schema that has all these tables.[SQL> select table_name from main_schema.user_tables where table_name like 'TMP%';] It does not fetch any results. How can I query DD from my account...? Thx

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You need to query the data from ALL_TABLES instead of user_tables.

Something like this:

<pre>select table_name
from ALL_TABLES
where table_name like ‘TMP%’;
</pre>

Regards,
