Temp tables
A temp table is a set of fields (columns) that temporarily stores multiple rows of data during a session. It generally exists only for the duration of the procedure that defines it, or at most for the duration of a session. A field in a temp table can be a direct copy of a field in a persistent database table, or it can be derived from other fields or data sources.
