Usage of inmod


Usage of inmod

I would like to know when inmod can be used when using utilities like Fastload and Mload. I have come across usage of inmod where data is unloaded from a DB2 table using a Cobol program and then loaded into teradata without creating an intermediate flat file. Is there any other situation where inmod is useful?

I would also like to know if inmod can be used to load data from Oracle to Teradata without creating any intermediate files just like it was done for loading from DB2 to Teradata.

Thanks and regards,
