Sample Script

For the sample script that corresponds to this job, see the following scripts in the sample/userguide directory:

PTS00019: Exporting Data and Processing It with an OUTMOD Routine.

Rationale

The job uses:

  • Export operator because it is the fastest way to extract large amounts of data from a Teradata Database.
    The SQL operator extracts data more slowly than the Export operator. Use the SQL Selector operator only if the Teradata Database is short on load slots, because the SQL Selector operator does not use Teradata Database load slots.
  • FastExport OUTMOD Adapter because it is the only operator that can interface with an OUTMOD routine written for the FastExport utility.
