When using the SelectStmt attribute to define the ODBC operator, multistatement SELECTs are allowed as long as the ODBC driver supports them.

The ODBC operator does not check the attribute for the presence of a multistatement SELECT.

If there is a multistatement SELECT, and the ODBC driver does not support it, the driver returns an error (although the error might not state that a multistatement SELECT was attempted) and the job terminates.

Also, the schema returned from the SELECT must match the schema as defined in the Teradata PT job script.

Oracle incorrectly processes 1 MB SELECT statements, and might cause a loss of data. For more information, consult your Teradata field representative.
