When using the DataConnector operator, formatted, unformatted, and text records are accepted. A formatted record, in the Teradata Database world, consists of a record created by a Teradata utility, such as BTEQ, where the record is packaged with begin- and end-record bytes specific to the Teradata Database. Unformatted records are any records not originating on a Teradata Database, such as spreadsheets and non-Teradata Database files. These files contain records that must be defined before loading onto the Teradata Database.
