  UTY4017 Not enough data in vartext record number 1.  

  This is a simple job that reads from sequential file and loads teradata tables.I have checked all the column definitions and also tried with all kinds of test data.  

  sequential file has char, decimal and date data types.  

If it's FORMAT VARTEXT then only VARCHAR/VARBYTE fields are allowed, nothing else.

     data: 20050217|12345.67|bla

     ct foo(
     mydate date,
     maydec dec(8,2),
     mychar char(5)

     .FIELD mydate * VARCHAR(8)
     .FIELD mydec * VARCHAR(10)
     .FIELD mychar * VARCHAR(5)

MLoad will try to cast it during the insert, so maybe you have to specify a Format string:

     insert into mydate
     (:mydate (date (format 'yyyymmdd')),
