Teradata FastLoad processes a series of Teradata FastLoad commands and Teradata SQL statements entered either interactively or in batch mode.
Use the Teradata FastLoad commands for session control and data handling of the data transfers. The Teradata SQL statements create, maintain, and drop tables on the database.
During a load operation, Teradata FastLoad inserts the data from each record of the data source into one row of the table on a database. The table on the database receiving the data must be empty and have no defined secondary indexes.
