  • When moving data from a flat file to a Teradata Database table, the data schema is inferred from the target table.
  • When moving data between Teradata tables, the data schema is inferred from either:
    • The Source table specified in the --SourceTable option, or
    • The SQL SELECT statement defined in the --SelectStmt option.

An error is returned if no target table is specified.

If the source data does not match the inferred schema, the Easy Loader job terminates with an error.
