You can filter the values for the test field in a VALUE, FORMAT, NOT_NULL, or NOT_BLANK test. Data Validation Option does not test records that do not satisfy the filter condition. For example, you want to test rows in an ORDERS table only if the store ID number is not “1036.” Enter
STORE_ID <> 1036
Data Validation Option does not check the condition syntax. Any valid PowerCenter expression, including expressions that use PowerCenter functions, is allowed. If the PowerCenter syntax is not valid, a mapping installation error occurs when you run the test.
Enter the filter condition in the
field. Because the PowerCenter Integration Service processes the filter condition, it must use valid PowerCenter syntax. Do not include the WHERE keyword.
