The following table describes the things to consider when using the ROUTE MESSAGES command.

ROUTE MESSAGES Usage Notes 
Topic Usage Notes
Default Message Destinations If the ROUTE MESSAGES command is not used, Teradata MultiLoad writes output messages to:
  • DDNAME SYSPRINT in z/OS
  • stdout in UNIX OS and Windows
z/OS fileid Usage Rules If a DDNAME is specified, Teradata MultiLoad writes messages to the specified source.

A DDNAME must obey the same construction rules as Teradata SQL column names, except that:

  • The “at” character (@) is allowed as an alphabetic character.
  • The underscore character (_) is not allowed.

The DDNAME must obey the applicable rules of the external system and may reference a sequential or VSAM data set.

The DDNAME represents a data source on magnetic tape, the tape may be either labeled or non-labeled, as supported by the operating system.

Specifying the System Console/Standard Output Device Use the asterisk character (*) as the fileid1 or fileid2 specifications to route messages to the system console/standard output (stdout) device.

The system console is the:

  • Display screen in interactive mode
  • Standard output device in batch mode

For more information about the display screen and standard output devices, see File Requirements.
