INMOD and OUTMOD Adapter Operators
INMOD Adapter Operators
Input modification (INMOD) adaptor operators are user-written INMOD routines that can preprocess data before it is sent to the Load or Update operator and then to the Teradata Database.
An INMOD routine, which can be invoked by the INMOD adapter operator, cannot send data directly to the consumer operators. The INMOD routine and the INMOD adapter operator can together act as a produce operator to pass data to the Load or Update operators.

OUTMOD Adaptor Operators
Output modification (OUTMOD) adaptor operators are user-written routines that process extracted data prior to delivering the data to its final destination.
An OUTMOD routine cannot be directly invoked by the Teradata PT Export operator. Rather, OUTMOD routines are invoked by the Teradata PT FastExport OUTMOD adapter operator, which acts as a consumer operator to read data from the Export operator.
