Subject RE: [ib-support] creating tables
Author Wilson, Fred
Therein is the problem. MS SQLServer does a lot of things differently than
IB/FB and IB/FB does many things differently than MS SQLServer.
IB/FB simpy does many things "better" than MS SQLServer and therefore does
need (usually) temp. tables.
If you define your problem(s), that is why you need the temp. tables,
someone will show you the way to do it in IB/FB.
The task of converting from MS SQLServer to IB/FB is not always trival and
requires work, due to the differences between the two database designs.
After determining the amount of work required, you may, or may not, decided
to continue with the conversion. After all, as you pointed out in you

"currently running with m$ sql server and WORKS VERY WELL."

Your current solution works "VERY WELL."

Best regards,

simply i need to create tables because:
i'm trying to migrate a system to ib/fb that is
currently running with m$ sql server and WORKS VERY WELL.
the database uses temp tables and i can't find a way to do
something (similar or not) to obtain the same result.
