This section explains how to define the input and output files required to run BTEQ in batch mode. It also describes how to define additional files required by specific BTEQ commands in both batch and interactive modes.

Input files (or input stream files) are user-defined files identified as sources of BTEQ commands, SQL requests, or data to be written to a Teradata Database. Similarly, output files are user-defined files identified as destinations for data or error messages retrieved from the Teradata Database.
