In the inline method, data rows sent across the Teradata PT data stream must contain both non-LOB and LOB data. The inline BLOB and CLOB columns in the data rows are treated as similar as the VARBYTE and VARCHAR columns.

However, these BLOB and CLOB columns must have an 8-byte integer as their length indicator field instead of 2-byte length indicator as in the VARBYTE and VARCHAR columns.

One restriction in using the inline method to transfer LOB data is that the entire data row should not be larger than 64,000 bytes since that is the row-size limit imposed by the Teradata PT data stream.
