Arguments

conn

a OdbcConnection object, produced by DBI::dbConnect()

name

a character string specifying a table name. Names will be automatically quoted so you can use any sequence of characters, not just any valid bare table name.

value

A data.frame to write to the database.

overwrite

Allow overwriting the destination table. Cannot be TRUE if append is also TRUE.

append

Allow appending to the destination table. Cannot be TRUE if overwrite is also TRUE.

temporary

If TRUE, will generate a temporary table statement.

row.names

Either TRUE, FALSE, NA or a string.

If TRUE, always translate row names to a column called "row_names". If FALSE, never translate row names. If NA, translate rownames only if they're a character vector.

A string is equivalent to TRUE, but allows you to override the default name.

For backward compatibility, NULL is equivalent to FALSE.

field.types

Additional field types used to override derived types.

batch_rows

The number of rows to retrieve. Defaults to NA, which is set dynamically to the size of the input. Depending on the database, driver, dataset and free memory setting this to a lower value may improve performance.

...

Other arguments used by individual methods.

con

A database connection.

table

Name of the table. Escaped with dbQuoteIdentifier().

fields

Either a character vector or a data frame.

A named character vector: Names are column names, values are types. Names are escaped with dbQuoteIdentifier(). Field types are unescaped.

A data frame: field types are generated using dbDataType().

## Not run: 
library(DBI)
con <- dbConnect(odbc::odbc())
dbListTables(con)
dbWriteTable(con, "mtcars", mtcars, temporary = TRUE)
dbReadTable(con, "mtcars")

dbListTables(con)
dbExistsTable(con, "mtcars")

# A zero row data frame just creates a table definition.
dbWriteTable(con, "mtcars2", mtcars[0, ], temporary = TRUE)
dbReadTable(con, "mtcars2")

dbDisconnect(con)

## End(Not run)
