This option is enabled only if Sequential is selected.

Writeback table option
Choose the option used to manage a writeback table:

  • Create creates a writeback table if it does not exist. An error occurs if a writeback table already exists.

  • Create always creates a writeback table if it does not exist, or overwrites the existing writeback table if it does exist.

  • Use existing uses the existing writeback table if it exists. An error occurs if a writeback table does not exist.
