Teradata MultiLoad is case sensitive when comparing &SYS system variables. In this example, the RUN FILE command does not execute because the substituted values returned are all capitals:

0003 .IF '&SYSDAY' = 'Fri' THEN;
14:10:28 - FRI MAY 09, 1993
UTY2402 Previous statement modified to:
0004 .IF 'FRI' = 'Fri' THEN;
0005 .RUN FILE UTNTS38;
0006 .ENDIF; 

Always consider this factor when creating a script to force the execution of a predetermined sequence of events. If 'FRI' is substituted in line 0003, the compare would work and the RUN FILE command would execute.
