Manually Creating a Source Definition

Manually Creating a Source Definition

You can manually create a source definition.
To create a source definition:
  1. In the Source Analyzer, click Sources > Create.
  2. Enter the name for the source, the database name, and database type.
  3. Click Create.
    An empty table structure appears in the workspace. (It may be covered by the dialog box.) The new source table also appears within the Navigator window.
  4. Click Done when you are finished creating source definitions.
  5. Configure the source definition.
The source definition is saved to the repository. You can now use the source definition in a mapping. You can also create a source table based on this definition in the source database.
