The QlikView Teradata (TPT) Connector enables QlikView to efficiently load data into an application from a Teradata database with the Teradata Parallel Transport service. The connector uses the Teradata FastExport utility to export data from the database. The realtime output of the FastExport utility is piped into the connector where it is processed and piped into the QlikView application. The BTEQ utility is used to retrieve table metadata. The metadata is used by the QlikView Create Select Statement dialog to specify the table and columns to select for the SQL SELECT statement.

To use the QlikView Teradata (TPT) Connector, you must install the Teradata Tool Utilities (TTU) V13.10 or more recent. The TTU components that are required are the FastExport utility and the BTEQ utility. The TTU must be acquired directly from the Teradata Download Center.

The QlikView Teradata (TPT) Connector is obtained from www.qlik.com. Log on with a registered customer or partner account and select Support. On the Qlik Support page, select Customer Downloads and then select the Connector tab.
