in_schema {dbplyr}R Documentation

Refer to a table in a schema or a database catalog


in_schema() can be used in tbl() to indicate a table in a specific schema. in_catalog() additionally allows specifying the database catalog.


in_schema(schema, table)

in_catalog(catalog, schema, table)


catalog, schema, table

Names of catalog, schema, and table. These will be automatically quoted; use sql() to pass a raw name that won't get quoted.


in_schema("my_schema", "my_table")
in_catalog("my_catalog", "my_schema", "my_table")
# eliminate quotes
in_schema(sql("my_schema"), sql("my_table"))

# Example using schemas with SQLite
con <- DBI::dbConnect(RSQLite::SQLite(), ":memory:")

# Add auxiliary schema
tmp <- tempfile()
DBI::dbExecute(con, paste0("ATTACH '", tmp, "' AS aux"))

library(dplyr, warn.conflicts = FALSE)
copy_to(con, iris, "df", temporary = FALSE)
copy_to(con, mtcars, in_schema("aux", "df"), temporary = FALSE)

con %>% tbl("df")
con %>% tbl(in_schema("aux", "df"))
