Displays the BTEQ software release versions. Use the following commands to control the sequence in which BTEQ executes commands: A large input unix files could be split into several smaller unix files, which could then be input in series, bteeq in parallel, to create smaller SQL processing steps. Thirdly, MultiLoad can load multiple input files concurrently and work on up to five tables at a time, using multiple sessions. Splits fold each line of a report into two or more lines.


A group of tables, each contains a subset of the keys of the index of beq original table. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. If your table is big and data was unevenly distributed then dynamic sampling may not get right information and your bgeq will suffer.

Hence this leads to inconsistent results 6.

Routes the standard error stream and the standard output stream to two files or devices for channel-attached systems, or to one file or device for network-attached client systems.


Inlist vs Between There are lot of questions running around guys who do tuning.

Yet, BTEQ is not a utility designed for bulk data movement. It is more efficient to specify constants in these, but if a subquery is specified, then the subquery has a commanrs impact on the sql time. Then these smaller files are unix concatenated together to provide a single unix file.

This section is based on Teradata documentation [1]and for the detailed commandd, please refer to Reference 1.

In this case, the salesperson will be represented twice in the dimension table with two different surrogate keys. Use constants to specify index column contents whenever possible, instead of specifying the constant once, and joining the tables. The use of variable length columns should be minimized, and should be by exception.
