The FastLoad INMOD Adapter operator is a producer operator that allows you to use Teradata FastLoad utility INMOD routines within Teradata PT.
The term INMOD is an acronym for “input modification.” INMOD routines are user exit routines the FastLoad INMOD adapter can call to provide enhanced processing functions on input data records before they are sent to the Teradata Database.
You can use the FastLoad INMOD Routine with the FastLoad INMOD Adapter to read and preprocess input data values from files on the client system. These then provide the USING data for a subsequent SELECT statement.
For information on creating and using FastLoad INMOD Routines Teradata FastLoad Reference (B035-2411).
The following figure shows the FastLoad INMOD Adapter operator interface.
