Use the File menu to establish a connection, define a data source, or exit the Teradata Administrator application.

The File menu displays three selections until a connection with a database server is established. Establishing a connection adds the remaining selections to the File menu. Use these to perform file maintenance functions on the objects of the connected database, and to open and terminate connections.
