Create a report from a macro by instructing BTEQ in a prepared script or input stream file to export the data returned as a report. To do this, use one of the following options:
- Create a macro on a Teradata Database and execute it from the script file.
In this case, the macro contains the appropriate BTEQ commands to generate a report, and the script file contains the BTEQ EXPORT command, the Teradata EXECUTE macro statement, and other BTEQ commands. This is the preferred method.
- Place the macro in the script file and create and execute it from there.
This method creates the macro every time it executes the request, which is a major disadvantage.
