The Transfer Progress View displays a list of executing data transfer jobs and their status. It provides information about the source and destination tables for the data transfer, name of the transfer job, and start time, as well as the current elapsed time for the transfer operation. A progress bar appears in the right-most column for each executing job and shows the current progress state of the transfer compared to the estimated length of time to completion.

The Transfer Progress View runs a single job to completion before it starts the next job. If multiple jobs are submitted at the same time, the jobs are placed in a queue and run in sequence.

If you close Teradata Studio while jobs are running or queued, the jobs are canceled. Canceled jobs are moved to the History View where you can re-execute the jobs at a later time. If you close the view and need to re-open it, go to Window > Window > Transfer Progress View. The Transfer Progress View automatically displays when you select the Data Transfer perspective.
