Table scan access requests

The TBSCAN access request element can be used to specify that the optimizer is to use a sequential table scan to access a local table. It is defined by the complex type tableScanType.

XML Schema

   <xs:complexType name="tableScanType">
         <xs:extension base="accessType"/>


The complex type tableScanType is a simple extension of the abstract type accessType. No new elements or attributes are added. If the table scan access method is not in the search space that is in effect for the statement, the access request is ignored and SQL0437W with reason code 13 is returned.

The following guideline is an example of a table scan access request:
     <TBSCAN TABLE='S1'/>
