A Teradata PT script starts with an optional header that contains general information about the job, and the required DEFINE JOB statement that names and describes the job, as shown in Figure 9.Figure 9: Job Header and Job Name
Consider the following when creating the job header and assigning the job name.
Note that the jobname shown in the DEFINE JOB statement is not necessarily the same as the “jobname” specified in the tbuild statement when launching the job, although it can be. The tbuild statement might specify something like “Two Source Bulk Updateddmmyy,” to differentiate a specific run of the job.
For detailed information on tbuild and how to specify the job and job script, see “Setting tbuild Options” on page 139.
