Subj:   Re: BTEQ Import, Variable Substitution Error
From:   Paul Swier

When we create databases we pass are able to pass in the database name. I can not take credit for this script but it seems to work.

First we created a db.lst that looks like the following:


The first name is the database.

Then we have our bteq script that looks like this:

.logon ;
.set width 254;
.set titledashes off;
.set maxerror 0;
.set errorout stdout;
.OS del tmp.bte;
.export report file=tmp.bte;
select '.logon tddevelm/sysdba;' (title '');
select '.set width 254;' (title '');
select '.set titledashes off;' (title '');
select '.set maxerror 0;' (title '');
select '.set errorout stdout;' (title '');
.import vartext '|' file=db.lst
.repeat *
using (tdb varchar(30)  ,ri varchar(1))
select 'delete database '||trim(:tdb)||';' (title '')
;select ' database '||trim(:tdb)||';'  (title '')
;select case when :ri = 'N' then '.run file=tmds_nori.sql;'
                            else '.run file=tmds_ri.sql'  end (title '')
.export reset;

We used the import vartext command to pass in the name of the database.

Not sure if this helps or just confuses everyone.
