The loadExampleData() function helps users to load the sample datasets.

tdplyr offers various API's and each API provides some examples. To try the API's in these examples, you need the sample datasets loaded in Vantage. The loadExampleData() function enables the user to load these sample datasets.

This function can only be used in a restricted way. Function arguments can only accept predetermined values, which are found only in loadExampleData() function calls given in the examples provided in Teradata Package for R Function Reference and this User Guide.

  • If the table with the name provided in the function call already exists, this function skips creation and loading of the dataset.
  • This function creates a new table in Vantage. You must drop the table manually if required.

Example

  • Drop the table if it already exists.
    > try(db_drop_table(con, "computers_train1"), silent = TRUE)
  • Check table in Vantage.
    > db_has_table(con, "computers_train1")
    [1] FALSE
  • Load example dataset in Vantage.
    > loadExampleData("kmeans_example", "computers_train1")
    Loading:  ALICE.computers_train1 ....
  • Check table in Vantage again.
    > db_has_table(con, "computers_train1")
    [1] TRUE
  • Print the tbl_teradata of the table loaded to Vantage.
    > tbl(con, "computers_train1")
    # Source:   table<computers_train1> [?? x 6]
    # Database: [Teradata 16.20.50.01] [Teradata Native Driver 17.0.0.2] [TDAPUSER@server.labs.teradata.com/TDAPUSERDB]
