Step 3. Change the Source Connection

Step 3. Change the Source Connection

To use FastExport in the session, change the Teradata source connection to a Teradata FastExport connection. You can override some session attributes.
The following table describes the session attributes you can change for FastExport:
Attribute
Default Value
Precision
Is Staged
Disabled
If enabled, FastExport writes data to a stage file. Otherwise, FastExport writes data to a named pipe.
Fractional seconds precision
0
The precision for fractional seconds following the decimal point in a timestamp. You can enter 0 to 6. For example, a timestamp with a precision of 6 is 'hh:mi:ss.ss.ss.ss.' The fractional seconds precision must match the setting in the Teradata database.
Temporary File
$PMTempDir\
PowerCenter uses the temporary file name to generate the names for the log file, control file, and the staged output file. Enter a complete path for the file.
Control File Override
Blank
The control file text. Use this attribute to override the control file the Integration Service creates for a session.
