.set record vartextAlso the DEFINE describes the input file, not the table. In particular, if you use VARTEXT all DEFINE fields must be declared VARCHAR. The values will be translated to internal format during the load.

Sometime teradata behaves strangely... this error may be coming because of incorrect order of fileds in the control file. Recheck/regenerate the control file and try again.

I had faced this error and I had used the above mentioned step to resolve the issue.
