Specify BTEQ commands in any combination of uppercase, lowercase, and mixed-case formats. Specify BTEQ commands on a single line, or on multiple lines using the continuation character.
Do not use a BTEQ command and an SQL request on the same line.
Signed numbers are not recognized for BTEQ command arguments. All numeric arguments must be positive values. Use of signed numbers might cause unpredictable parsing results. This restriction does not apply to SQL statements submitted through BTEQ.
