Glossary of Terms

Teradata tbl object: Refers to the object created using the tbl() function of the "dplyr" package, when the function is invoked with a Teradata connection. Teradata tbl is an object of class "tbl_teradata". For example, to create a Teradata tbl object from an existing table "TABLE1" with a connection "con", use the command: dplyr::tbl(con, "TABLE1").
