Default Tables Storage Area property

This documentation is valid for:

Allows you to indicate the name of the tablespace where GeneXus will create/reorganize the tables.


The Tablespace Storage Area Name, this property is not related to a default value.

How to apply changes

Create database

If this option is not used, GeneXus will not generate the TABLESPACE clause when the tables are created/reorganized. This means that the tables will be created, by default, in the current user's tablespace.


  • A change in this configuration option (moving tables to other tablespaces) will not force the entire reorganization of the database. The change affects the creation/reorganization processes that are carried out later on, and they are only performed over the tables that these processes can manipulate. In other words, a change in this configuration option will gradually be noted by the database as these tables are created.
  • GeneXus does not create the tablespace. If a table is created and the Tablespace does not exist then an error will occur.
