fexp data doubt Topic by nishi 23 Nov 2006

Hello,I have experience with SQL but I am new to Teradata and fexp tool, I am given a task to download data from a Teradata database, I have started with a simple query like below:.LOGTABLE cmpdb.lg1;.LOGON db1/nr2876,pwd;.BEGIN EXPORT;.EXPORT OUTFILE tbl1 format text mode record;SELECT trim(transaction_dt) FROM table1;.END EXPORT;.LOGOFF;But I am getting extra characters in the beginning of each record(shown below). What is this character and how I could avoid this character in my data download? Your help will be appreciated. I have tried select statement with CAST too, but I got the same result. I also tried different varchar and integer fields with same result(extra characters in the front).^H20050907^H20050912^H20050917^H20050925^H20050923^H20050923^H20050730^H20050730^H20050730Also I just have this basic question, what tool is better to download huge data(around 30 million records each with 70 int/date/varchar fields) from Teradata, Bteq or fexp or any other tools? My query contains lot of create, insert and select statements.Thank you for your time,nishi
