Data Conversion Factors

Use the Teradata MultiLoad FIELD command to change the data type specification of source data before inserting it in the Teradata MultiLoad table on Teradata Database. However, the limitation is one type conversion per column. For details about data types and data conversion, see SQL Data Types and Literals.

Note: Teradata MultiLoad cannot be used to define a column with an arithmetic expression. For example, Teradata MultiLoad will not calculate a monthly salary column from yearly salary data.
