Understanding teradata sample scripts

Hi Guys,

I'm new to Terdata so trying to understand the sample/qstart programs in the Teradata dir. I was looking into the qstart1, and didn't understand where definition of the OPERATOR "$FILE_WRITER" or "$LOAD" was.

Can some one please help me with that.

--Thanks,

Kannan

You mean the scripts found in Teradata\Client...? Those are examples for TPT (Teradata Parallel Transporter).


Files in quickstart are based on the TPT Quick Start Guide and userguide scripts are based on the TPT User Guide.

The $FILE_WRITER and $LOAD syntax describes the use of templates.

Those templates define the operators you are trying to use, and those operator definitions are found in the "templates" directory where TPT is installed.

You should see $FILE_WRITER.txt and $LOAD.txt files in that directory.

Re: Understanding teradata sample scripts

Did you mentioned that there are scripts accompanying the guide.

 

If so, what is the url for those scripts.
