Hi all

Am done with some trainings on teradata. am still giving some reading.


I want to know the roles and responsibilities of a Teradata Developer with 3 - 5 years of experience.Would be helpful for my preperation.




Windows setup: tdodbc__windows_i386. (tdicu, TeraGSS, tdodbc), Python-2.7.3, pyodbc-3.0.3


I am able to extract data from using tdxodbc.  The following piece of python code also works fine -- 



>>> import pyodbc

Here is what I have that is causing the error........












I am trying to import some data and it keeps giving me a format error. Is this because I am not including the column headers? Thanks for the help!

I need some help as to how I can import a .csv file with the date format as MMDDYYYY so that it changes to YYYYMMDD. I know you can do a INSERT INTO table.name function and add the FORMAT(column name) function, but I am not exactly sure of the syntax and how to correctly do it. Any help or guidance is appreciated.


First, I would like to appologize to those who will find my question too general or even maybe irrelevant to the forum topics that can be found here, but I need to ask these questions.

I just got a job in a Telekom company that is using Teradata. I have a few assignments that have to do with ETL processes.


We are trying to do a EntityManager.MERGE operation in JPA and trying to retrieve the ID generated from the identity column but Teradata doesn't return the ID like Oracle does. is there any way of pulling the ID back from the JPA transaction.


The environment my Windows app runs in has recently changed and uses LDAP as the authentication method for connection to the Teradata warehouse.

But I'm really stuck, I am unable to connect using my app now.  I can connect ok using the Queryman application, using the same User ID and Password values, so I know the connection is possible and queries will run and return results from the Queryman application.

My ConnectionString looks like this:

I have a table with a column of alpha-numeric data the currently has multiple (periods) "." and spaces in the string.

I need to remove them for data compare in another DBMS.

I have searched not only through this forum but others as well and can not seem to find the solution.

is looking for opportunity accross Europe or USA.

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, UK preferred. Available since 1-st July 2012.

The Teradata Named Pipe Access Module (NPAM) provides an inter-process communication link between a writer process (such as FastExport) and a reader process (such as FastLoad). The NPAM can also be used by Teradata Parallel Transporter (TPT) for data transfer.

The reader process will initialize the NPAM module via an Initialization string and this article details the various parameters that are initialized during this process.

I have just complete some testing with a application I have made using the JDBC teradata driver. However, when I read from my resultset it appears that I lose non standard characters such as (± ¼ »). These are typically used within xml which is what I am also retrieving from the database, and they return as question marks, with an int value of 65533.
The values themselves are correctly shown in Teradata SQL assistant.
I have also tried creating a mysql database, which I could return the same characters from successfully.

I was running a complicated query using Teradata installed on my local laptop. But my laptop went to stand-by mode as it was closed. So, I had to re-boot my laptop. I have been running the teradata query for the last 8 hours and feel frustrated. Is there a way to recover whatever was done by the query and re-start from where it crashed?
