How to automate exports in tab-delimited form from Teradata fast export ?
We have the file export option in SQL Assistant 12.0, We can automate similar functionality using fast export which can be as a command or batch file
But in fastexport the result file has the rows with leading 2-byte length indicator which is annoying. To eliminate the 2-byte in the Fast Export output:
.EXPORT OUTFILE &dwoutfile MODE RECORD FORMAT TEXT;
Make sure that the SELECT SQL must generate a fixed length export field. So you will inflate the size of the file and end up with a delimited but fixed length export file
