How can I access tables that were created by another user?

In order to access a table created by another user you must first be granted access to that table. The access can be granted either by the table's creator, or by your DBA or system administrator. You will need at least SELECT access, but you might need additional authority as well. Be sure to fully inform the granter what you intend to do to the table and why - this is necessary in order for you to be granted the proper authority.

You will also need to know the CREATOR ID of the table as the table will need to be prefixed by this qualifier. For example, if userid BOB created a table named CUSTOMER, then in order to access the table you would referenced it as BOB.CUSTOMER (unless BOB created the table under a different CREATOR name).
