The following example shows one way of performing an iterated request in BTEQ:

     .IMPORT DATA FILE = r13sales.dat;
     .REPEAT RECS 200 PACK 100

     USING (pid INTEGER, pname CHAR(12))
     INSERT INTO ptable VALUES(:pid, :pname);

The .REPEAT command specifies that BTEQ should read up to 200 data records and pack a maximum of 100 data records with each request.
