From:   Gloria Branham

     Problem : Input data is Julian date format packed format is (YYDDD)
               Teradata column define as decimal  leading zeros are

     Solution : Recreate table with column define as date. Date Format 'YYDDD'

      New problem:  Using fastload  receiving error on define

     0003   DEFINE
                  DIV                   (CHAR(01))
                 ,PLANT              (CHAR(02))
                 ,TRANCODE       (CHAR(02))
                 ,TRANDATE        (INTEGER(03))
                 ,TRANTIME         (CHAR(05))
                 ,ITEMNUM          (CHAR(15))
                 ,FILLER1            (CHAR(08))
                 ,ACTVDATE        (CHAR(05))

      **** 15:41:40 DEFINE Syntax Error
      **** 15:41:40 Missing ')' in definition for column: TRANDATE

What is the best format for loading this data?
