Hi,Your file should be input. See what are the paramters you need to set: sessions(min ,max),pack,serialize off/on,checkpoint, robust on/off,monitor after .begin load . Your input should be import infile xxxx layout urlayout....apply urdml.....Just in case you use tool, say abinitio as example, you can load from one db to another after configuring your dbc file.Enjoy,Raja

TPump is not the ideal tool for moving a million records around - it is much slower than Fastload or Mload, and uses a lot more resource!Best way is to export the data to a flat file or pipe it directly into a Fastload or Multiload using a host which has access to both the SQL Server and Teradata systems.
