The term INMOD is an acronym for input modification routines. An INMOD is a user-written routine used by Teradata TPump to supply or preprocess input records before they are sent to the database.

An INMOD routine can be used to supply input records or to perform preprocessing tasks on the input records before passing them to Teradata TPump. Such tasks, for example, could:
  • Generate records to be passed to Teradata TPump.
  • Validate data records before passing them to Teradata TPump.
  • Read data directly from one or more database systems such as IMS, Total.
  • Convert fields in a data record before passing it to Teradata TPump.

The INMOD is specified as part of the IMPORT command. See IMPORT for INMOD syntax information.
