While processing a Teradata FastLoad job script, Teradata FastLoad tracks and records information about five types of error conditions that cause the database to reject an input data record. The following table describes these error conditions.

Error Conditions Description
Constraint violations Records from the input file that do not comply with the range constraints that were specified in the CREATE TABLE statement.
Conversion errors Records from the input file that fail a data type conversion that was specified in the DEFINE command.
Duplicate rows Records from the input file that are exact duplicates of existing rows.
Unavailable AMP conditions Records from the input file that are destined for a nonfallback table on an AMP that is down.
Unique primary index violations Records from the input file that have a value for the unique primary index field that already exists, but is not a duplicate row.
Teradata FastLoad does not store duplicate rows in an error table.

Additionally, when operating in batch mode, Teradata FastLoad returns the system error codes for error conditions encountered during Teradata FastLoad operations. (Teradata FastLoad does not return system error codes when operating in interactive mode.) This subsection describes the procedures for handling the five types of Teradata FastLoad error conditions.
