Input modification (INMOD) adapter operators are user-written INMOD routines that can preprocess data before it is sent to the Load or Update operator and then to the Teradata Database.
An INMOD routine, which can be invoked by the INMOD adapter operator, cannot send data directly to the consumer operators. The INMOD routine and the INMOD adapter operator can together act as a produce operator to pass data to the Load or Update operators.
The following figure shows a sample job flow using the FastLoad INMOD Adapter Operator.
