1.  ODBC driver version.

2. Lack of rights to access view dbc.TablesVX.



1. Try a different Teradata ODBC driver or driver version than the one you have.  Supported Teradata ODBC drivers can be found in the Alteryx Help documentation.

2. Have at least the SELECT permissions to dbc.TablesVX. It may be necessary to consult a Teradata DBA for further assistance.
