Perform the following steps to name a new job.
  1. In the left pane of the main window, click Job to activate the new job icon.
  2. Do one of the following to open the Job Name/Description dialog box:
    • Click Edit > New.

    • Click the New Job icon .

    • Right-click, and click New.

    • Press Ctrl+N .

  3. In the Job Name/Description dialog box, type a name and description for the job using no more than 128 characters.

    The job name must start with a letter (upper or lower case) followed by a zero or more letters, and may contain digits (0-9). An underscore is also valid. If the text turns red during typing, the name does not meet these requirements. The following message appears when the Next button is clicked:

    When a job name is changed, Teradata PT Wizard creates a new job script with the new job name. The script with the old job name still exists.

    The job description can remain blank; having a job description is not required. But like the job name, it appears in three places:

    • In the second column next to the job name when the Job root is clicked in the left pane

    • As the second line in the job summary

    • In the Description statement in the job script

    The job name and description can be changed when the job is edited.

  4. (Optional) Click Character Set to change the language.

    Teradata PT allows all character sets as long as they are supported by the Teradata Database. The default is the character set of the active platform; however, scripts and log output are in English only.

    The default character sets for all Teradata PT jobs are:

    • ASCII for network-attached client systems

    • EBCDIC for mainframe-attached client systems

    For information on extended character sets, see Teradata Parallel Transporter Reference (B035-2436) and International Character Set Support (B035-1125).

  5. Click Next to open the Job Source dialog box.

  6. Continue with Step 2 - Select a Source and Select Data.
