    Enter the BTEQ logon command with a logon ID. Include the dbcpath if the Teradata Database dbcpath is not the default i_dbcpath specified in clispb.dat.

  5. When prompted, enter the password. For example, if the Teradata Database has a dbcpath of Finance, the username is fml, and the password is fml, type:
