  1. Decide to do one of the following:
    • To run a new job, skip to step 4.
    • To run a previously created job, continue with Step 2.
    • To save the job without running it (so you can run the script later), or to store the script (so you can copy it into another script), continue with Step 2.
  2. Review the job summary for accuracy, and do one of the following:
    • To correct mistakes, click Back to return to the appropriate dialog box and make corrections.
    • To store the job to be run or edited later, clear the Run Job Now option, and click Finish.
    • To run the job now, select Run Job Now, then click Finish.
  3. If you opted to run the job in Step 2, the Run Job dialog box opened. Otherwise, open the Run Job dialog box for a stored job now by right-clicking the job name in the job tree of the main Wizard window, and click Submit.

  4. In Job Name, type the name of the job.
  5. (Optional) In Checkpoint Interval, type the number of seconds between checkpoint intervals.
    Valid checkpoint interval values are between 0 and 86400.
  6. (Optional) In Retry Limit, type a positive number; the default value is 100. This option specifies how many times Teradata PT will automatically retry a job step after a restart. The Retry Limit option corresponds to the tbuild -R option.
  7. (Optional) In Latency Interval, type the number of seconds until the Wizard flushes stale buffers.
    Currently, the Latency Interval option is available only for the Stream operator. For more information, see the Teradata Parallel Transporter Reference (B035-2436).
  8. (Optional) Select Enable Trace to enable the trace mechanisms.
  9. If Job Attributes is available, type the name and password for the source table and the destination table. (This pane is available only if you did not select the two options to include the user ID and password in the generated script during log on. For information about these options, see Teradata Table as a Target and Oracle Table as a Data Source.)
  10. (Optional) View and edit the script before running it. Note that any changes made to the script will not be saved by the Wizard for the next use of the script. The changes will only apply for the current run when the OK button is clicked.
  11. When you are ready to run the job, click OK.
While the job is running, the running icon is displayed. When the job is complete, status can be viewed in the Job Status dialog box. For more information, see View Job Output.
