A Teradata FastLoad job script, or program, is a set of Teradata FastLoad commands and Teradata SQL statements that actually load the data from the input data source or INMOD routine into the Teradata FastLoad table on the database.

Before running Teradata FastLoad in batch mode, a standard input file must be created that contains the Teradata FastLoad job script. Then use the appropriate input file specification to identify the standard input file when invoking Teradata FastLoad:
  • <infilename> specification on workstation-attached client systems
  • SYSIN DDNAME specification on mainframe-attached z/OS client systems
