When BTEQWIN is first started, it prompts you for the session charset to use, as shown in the following figure.
Only the four most-used character sets are supported. BTEQWIN does not support other charsets because the Unicode character sets can display the characters of most modern languages.
The BTEQWIN user interface consists of a standard application window.
The following functions can be performed from the BTEQWIN Main Window:
|You can …||For …|
|Enter commands||Session control, result formatting, and output data handling.|
|Submit Teradata SQL statements and requests to the associated Teradata Database||Processing.
Statements can be specified interactively, a statement at a time, or in batch mode using macros.
All input and output is displayed in the window. The command line, identified by a blinking cursor, is always the line that follows the last command prompt.
