A collection of commonly used Teradata PT jobs is shown in:

  • Chapter 5: “Moving External Data into Teradata Database.”
  • Chapter 6: “Moving Data from Teradata Database to an External Target.”
  • Chapter 7: “Moving Data within the Teradata Database Environment.”
  • Sample script for the common jobs shown in Chapters 5 through 7 are available in the following directory: <install-directory>/sample/userguide.

    Teradata PT Wizard

    The Teradata PT Wizard, included with the Teradata PT software, offers a simple GUI interface that prompts the user through each stage of job script creation.

    Although its main function is as a teaching tool, you can also use it to create rudimentary single-step job scripts, which can be copied and pasted into more a complex script.

    For information, see Appendix B: “Teradata PT Wizard.”
