When Write_NOS is done creating objects on external object store it can create a manifest file with the names of the objects written by WRITE_NOS. This example shows how to use the MANIFESTFILE option of WRITE_NOS to write data from an Advanced SQL Engine table to a manifest file on external object store.


  1. If not already done, set up an authorization to access external object store. See Setting Up Authorization for WRITE_NOS Examples.
  2. If not already done, set up a database table to extract data from. You can use one of your existing tables or set up a test table to use with the examples. See Setting Up a Test Table.
  3. If not already done, set up or obtain access to the external object store where you want to write data. Follow the instructions from your external storage vendor.
