Find a table by the name in Db2 database

Query below finds tables with specific name in all schemas in a database. In this case it searches for 'XGOREV' table.


select t.tabschema as schema_name,
       t.tabname as table_name
from syscat.tables t
where t.type = 'T'
and t.tabname = 'XGOREV'
order by schema_name,


  • schema_name - name of schema table was found in
  • table_name - name of table (redundant as it should be exactly the same as provided)


  • One row represents a table
  • Scope of rows: all found tables
  • Ordered by schema name


  1. There migh be more tables than one because different schemas in a database can have tables with the same names

Sample results

List of tables named 'XGOREV'.
