Sorry , of course the system does not pass on attachments, this is an extract.

Advanced Functionality
The OLE DB Access Module is an execut-able dynamic link library (DLL) that imports data from various data sources, returns the data to the Teradata client utility, which stores the data in the data ware-house. The Teradata database provides a host of utilities for processing large amounts of data in a batch environment:

* FastLoad
* FastExport
* MultiLoad
* TPump

All of these utilities have built in access module support, once again, eliminating the use for intermediate storage units. The client obtains the data by making calls into the access module directly, implemented in a DLL on Windows NT.

The OleLoad executable associated with the access module allows for access module job files (.amj) to be saved for future use. An access module job is a set of parameters defining OLE DB data source information to the OLE DB access module. The OleLoad program can be used to view and edit access module jobs. The access module jobs include parameters such as OLE DB data source, table name, and a list of columns. These access module job files can be used with FastLoad, FastExport, MultiLoad, and TPump, running on Windows NT.
