Subj:   Environment Variable in BTEQ
From:   Anomy Anom

<-- Anonymously Posted: Thursday, January 15, 2004 16:07 -->

Is there is any way to use an environment variable for the export file using BTEQ? I need to get the export file directory name from an environment variable in a Unix environment.

The environment variable is set using an export command in a script. It looks like this:

export DATADIR=/datasvc/data

The export statement I'm using looks like this:

.export report file=$DATADIR/temp/getLocation.dat

I've also tried to put () and {} around the DATADIR. This is what I get when I run my SQL:

*** Error: Open failed because: No such file or directory

What it's doing is looking for DATADIR as the path, not as an environment variable.
