Interrupting Statement Processing
You may interrupt ITEQ after a Teradata SQL statement is entered and before processing is completed. An interrupt causes ITEQ to pause, display a menu of choices, and wait for a directive. You may then choose to either continue processing, abort processing, log off the session, or exit ITEQ and return control to the client.
To interrupt a statement being processed by ITEQ:
Under MVS/TSO: Press RESET/(alt) PA1
Under VM/CMS: Press RESET/ENTER or RESET/(alt) PA2
If statement processing has already completed, normal action continues. If statement processing is still in progress, it is interrupted and the following action is taken:
ITEQ ATTENTION HANDLING ( Enter/Abort/Logoff/Quit ).
You may then choose one of the following:
The system returns a normal processing result.
The system attempts to abort processing of the statement. If successful, the screen clears and the following message is displayed on the top line of the screen:
3110 The transaction was aborted by the user.
(Also see “Aborting a Statement” on page 38.)
The screen clears and the following message is displayed on the top line of the screen:
LOGOFF during ITEQ Attention Handling.
LOGOFF completed. Use “QUIT;” to exit ITEQ.
You may either log on to another session with the standard ITEQ LOGON command, or return control to the client by typing QUIT;.
ITEQ performs a normal exit.
