Subj:   What's the BTEQ Syntax to Export Fixed-Field Text from Teradata Table for Cognos Transformer
 
From:   Joseph Massena

This is what I am using for csv but what's the syntax for fixed width with Column Titles? Any help greatly appreciated!

***************** Help from Transformer *****************

Transformer can use plain text (ASCII) files stored in the following formats:

Delimited-Field Text

Delimited-Field Text with Column Titles

Fixed-Field Text

Fixed-Field and Record without CR LF


You should not rely on the file extension as an indicator of file type. Text files are often saved with a .txt file extension, or .asc or .csv if delimited-field, but they can also be saved with any other file extension, or no extension at all.

If you use fixed-field text files you must define the columns manually, because Transformer has no information about how columns in the file are defined in the source file.
