I really don't know why, but dbc.EventsV usually has an entry 'Logging Online Archive Off' when a table is dropped and the submitting User is also included :-)

If the table has “online logging” enabled, we need to disable online logging when table is dropped.

But currently for most of the drop table statements Teradata submits a “LOGGING ONLINE ARCHIVE OFF” regardless if this table has been online logging enabled or not and hence you will see a “LOGGING ONLINE ARCHIVE OFF” row in RCEvent table for DROP TABLE statement. 


As per TD Engineering this is a known issue and will be fixed in future TD release.
