Find tables with digits in names in Vertica database

Tables usually do not have digits in their names, and if they do they have a special meaning. We use them to name backup tables with date of an backup (of single specific table while sensitive operation), archival tables with year or for partitioning tables.

Query below finds all tables with digits in their names.


select table_schema,
from v_catalog.tables
where regexp_like(table_name, '[0-9]')
order by table_schema,


  • table_schema - name of schema table was found in
  • table_name - name of found table


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