Teradata PT uses an SQL-like scripting language to define extract, updating, and load functions in a job script. This easy-to-use language is based on SQL, making it familiar to most database users. All Teradata PT operators use the same language.

The language is declarative and tells Teradata PT exactly what operations to perform. A single job script can define multiple operators, the schema, data updates, and pertinent metadata to create complex extract and load jobs.
