Subj:   Re: Can I give Input values to BTEQ file?
From:   Curley, David

You can't pass positional parameters to BTEQ (the way you can with SQL*Plus, if you've been working with Oracle).

In Windows, as Victor said, you'd have to do all substitutions in test.txt before running it. You could probably create a batch file to automate that, though. I'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard with Power Shell, either.

In Unix, you can use environment variables by wrapping the BTEQ script in a shell script and using input redirection.

You call

     test.sh 10 True

Where a bare-bones (and silly) test.sh looks like

     bteq << EOF
     .logon db/name,password;
     .export file /where/your/output/should/go.txt
     Select tablename, ''$2''
     from dbc.tables
     qualify row_number() over (order by tablename) < $1;
