Load FASTLOAD Error Records into Required Format

I need to store the value in the DataParcel column(which is of VARBYTE datatype) in the first error table of FASTLOAD into a permanent teradata table but with a proper format(The ddl of this table will be exactly the same as the target table, except that all datatypes are varchar)
I know this as a potential solution/*From teradata manual*/:
1. Export the dataparcel columns using BTEQ in RECORDMODE
2. Import it back again using BTEQ IMPORT-->USING-->INSERT statements. Here I need to ensure I strip out the first 2 bytes by using a dummy SMALLINT field in the USING modifier.
Is there any other solution where I achieve all of the above by keeping the record in teradata itself rather than export the records back to the client system and bring it back into Teradata?
Perhaps a UDF that converts the dataparcel column which is in varbyte to varchar?

Hi Suhail ,
I am following your different blogs for the same answer that you are requiring for .
What I feel from this post of you is ,the 1st method (export and import) ,described as a potential solution is working good for you. If so could you please share the entire script(bteq,table ddl etc) with me as I am failing to do the same .
I followed the same :
1. 1st I exported the dataparcel column to a .out file using bteq.
2. Now I am trying to import from this .out file to a teradata table and is getting the below error :

Import data size does not agree with byte length.
            The cause may be:
                1) IMPORT DATA vs. IMPORT REPORT
                2) incorrect incoming data
                3) import file has reached end-of-file.
