DESIGNER_SET_DESIGN_TYPE

Specifies whether Database Designer creates a comprehensive or incremental design. DESIGNER_SET_DESIGN_TYPE stores the design mode in the DESIGNS table.

If you do not explicitly set a design mode with this function, Database Designer creates a comprehensive design.

Name of the mode that Database Designer should use when designing the database, one of the following:

  • COMPREHENSIVE: Creates an initial or replacement design for all tables in the specified schemas. You typically create a comprehensive design for a new database.
