Teradata Tools and Utilities

The following table lists the data sets/files or input/output devices which Teradata MultiLoad uses to access the input data source.

Data Sets, Files and Devices 
Data Set/File or Device Provides
Configuration Optional specification of Teradata MultiLoad utility default values
Standard error Destination for Teradata MultiLoad errors
Standard input Teradata MultiLoad commands and Teradata SQL statements that make up the Teradata MultiLoad job
Standard output Destination for Teradata MultiLoad output responses and messages

When running Teradata MultiLoad in interactive mode, the terminal keyboard functions as the standard input device and the display screen is the standard output/error device. When running Teradata MultiLoad in batch mode, specify a data set or file name for each of these functions. The method of doing this varies, depending on the configuration of the client system:

  • On workstation-attached client systems, use the standard redirection mechanism (< infilename and > outfilename), the recommended approach, to specify the Teradata MultiLoad script files when the utility is invoked. Teradata MultiLoad script files can also be piped to Teradata MultiLoad when invoking the utility.
  • On mainframe-attached client systems, use standard z/OS JCL control statements (DD) to allocate and create the Teradata MultiLoad data sets or files before invoking the utility.
