Subj:   Loading XML files into Teradata
From:   David Clough


Is anyone loading XML files into Teradata and, if so, is this using a trickle feed (don't know if TPump can do it) or using Bteq ?

If the input file of XML messages is quite large (like a transactional canonical file) how would you handle that ?

I've played about with the example supplied in the XML manual :

     CREATE TABLE customer (
     customerID INTEGER,
     customerName VARCHAR(256),
     customerXML XML )
     PRIMARY INDEX (customerID);

     INSERT INTO customer (1, 'John Hancock', CREATE_XML('< ?xml version="1.0"
     encoding="UTF-8"? >
     John Hancock
100 1st Street, San Francisco, CA 94118
(858)555-1234 (858)555-9876 (858)555-9999 John@somecompany.com Mary Jane (987)654-3210 Some company, 2467 Pioneer Road, San Francisco, CA - 94117 434.99 32.55 467.54 10 F54709 Motorola S10-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headphones 29.50 295.00 1 Z19743 Motorola Milestone XT800 Cell Phone 139.99 139.99

... but when I do this :

     sel * from customer;

all I get is

     1        John Hancock        

Do you think it's got something to do with the first line : < ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"? >

(I've switched off Allow use of Named Parameters In Queries, as this was asking for a value for the question mark)

Has anyone got a simple example that does work (through Sql Assistant) ?
