When you use the Load operator in a Teradata PT job, Teradata PT directs each parallel instance of the Load operator to do the following:

  1. Log on to the Teradata Database, using your user name, password, Teradata Database, and account ID information specified in the job script.
  2. Load the input data into the Load target table on the Teradata Database.
  3. Log off the Teradata Database.
  4. If the Load operator job is successful, terminate the job and provide information about the job in the log or to the user, such as:
    • Total number of records read and sent to the Teradata Database
    • Number of errors posted to the error tables
    • Number of inserts applied
    • Number of duplicate rows
    • A status code indicating the success of the job
  5. If the job is unsuccessful, terminate the job and provide information about the job so that you can correct any problem and restart the job.
