FastExport is a command‑driven utility that uses multiple sessions to quickly transfer large amounts of data from tables and views of Teradata Database to a client‑based application.

Data can be exported from any table or view where the SELECT privilege has been granted. The destination for the exported data can be:

  • A file on a mainframe‑attached or network‑attached client system
  • An Output Modification (OUTMOD) routine written to select, validate, and preprocess the exported data
  • Note: Full tape support is not available for any function in FastExport for network‑attached client systems. To export data to a tape, write a custom access module that interfaces with the tape device. For information about how to write a custom access module, see the Teradata Tools and Utilities Access Module Programmer Guide (B035‑2424).
