Starting ITEQ

If the output files needed for your ITEQ session are determined by default, as described in Chapter 2, you may start ITEQ without any preliminaries by entering:

ITEQ

where the cursor is positioned and pressing ENTER.

ITEQ displays the screen shown in Figure 4.

Figure 4: ITEQ Startup Screen

After this screen is displayed, you may enter any ITEQ command. However, if you enter a Teradata SQL statement before executing the ITEQ LOGON command (described in the next section), ITEQ will display a request to “please logon.”

Notice:

While the ITEQ screen is displayed, do not press the following keys on your 3270 keyboard:

  • SYS REQ
  • Pressing this key causes the ITEQ session to be stopped until the reset key is pressed.

  • TEST
  • Pressing this key causes the session to be disconnected.
