Find Next

Use the Find Next tool to search for a column or port name in:
  • Transformations
  • Mapplets
  • Source definitions
  • Target definitions
With the Find Next tool, you can search one object at a time. You cannot search multiple objects at the same time. Use Find Next in each Designer tool. Select a single transformation or click in the Output window before performing the search.
The Designer saves the last 10 strings searched in the Find Next box on the Standard toolbar.
To find a column or port name:
  1. Select the transformation, mapplet, source or target definition, or click the Output window.
  2. Enter the text you want to search in the Find box on the Standard toolbar. For example, you might enter
    add
    to locate an address column.
    The search is not case sensitive.
  3. Click Edit > Find Next, click the Find Next button, or press Enter to search for the string.
    The Designer finds the first occurrence of the search string.
    You can also press F3 to search for the string.
  4. Press Enter again to search for the next occurrence of the search string. The Designer searches each port or column name in the transformation and wraps to the top of the transformation until it finds a match.
