Re: NEED HELP WITH FASTLOAD

Since you want to start over, make sure you drop all of the tables (target table and error tables), recreate the target table, and start over again.

 

BTW, if this is something new, you should be switching over to using TPT (Teradata Parallel Transporter).

Re: NEED HELP WITH FASTLOAD

Try single quotes '|' instead of ‘|’ (maybe your editor changed the quotes).

 

Additionally for VARTEXT all input fields must be defined as VARCHARs.

Re: NEED HELP WITH FASTLOAD

I think the BEGIN LOADING is missing the semi-colon at the end. It also only lists one error table name; you should put 2 names (one for the ET table and one for the UV table).

Steve - thanks, that worked. Still getting an error, not sure if this is a coding or data issue?

Re: NEED HELP WITH FASTLOAD

Also you may want to try just putting


SET RECORD VARTEXT;

 

You don't have to put the "|" in there because it defaults to "|".
