Can you copy the data on the other system to a temporary file on that
system, selecting the records you want, and then copy the temp file to the
target system?

Subject: How can I speed up the copying of data using DDM and field

We do not have a relational database entry for our production system so I
cannot use SQL to copy data from the production system.

I am using DDM and CPYF with field testing. The problem is I am trying to
copy 100k records from a file that has over 800 million records. CPYF does
not do the selection on the source system and instead appears to copy all
800 million records to the test system where it checks the values and either
writes the records or discards them. This takes forever to copy.

I have read rights to the file on the source system.

Is there another way to speed up the copy?
