The TPT DataConnector Operator is the mechanism by which TPT obtains data from or sends data to external native operating system flat (sequential) files or attached access modules.
This article will address the data formats usable with the TPT DataConnector Operator. For each format, we will first deal with the concept of a record, which roughly maps to a DBS table row. Secondly, we will address how these data are resolved to row columns using the TPT data schema. When these two requirements are validated, we will have converted the external data record to a Teradata DBS row. If not, we have a fatal data error*.
