The Request Pointer field specifies the address of the request string.
|Used by||Action Taken|
Before calling DBCHCL for the Initiate Request function, the application program must build a request string, such as a Teradata SQL request.
- N, Request Pointer must contain the address of the beginning of the request string.
- Y, Request Pointer must contain the address of the two-byte length field immediately preceding the request string. See Variable Length Request.
The request string should not be enclosed in apostrophes. If there is more than one statement in the request, a semicolon must separate the statements. A semicolon after the last statement in the request is optional.
