When I am trying to export data from Hadoop Hive to Teradata I am getting Datatype mismatch exception, especially for Date and Decimal format.

I have a file I am loading to a table in my database via TPT. Everything is working properly, however I am dropping records where the date format is m/d/yyyy (as opposed to mm/dd/yyyy).

Hi all,

I am brand new to Teradata and SQL and have a rather basic question. I am reading the book "Teach yourself SQL in 10 minutes" and am trying to import some sample data into Teradata so I can follow along with the examples in the book. The book has a number of different downloads available, but none of them specifically say Teradata.


I am using the bteq import export option,I have followed the following steps in order:

Step 1
export data from table to file

.set width 900
.export data file=myoutput.txt
Select item_id from
sample 10;

.export rest;

Step 2
creating a new table

create table db.tab2
(item_id integer)

Step 3
import data from file to table

.import data file=myoutput.txt,skip=3
.quiet on
.repeat *
using item_id(integer)
insert into db.tab2
