Overriding XML Source File Information

Overriding XML Source File Information

There can be multiple XML files that match an XML definition and need to be tested, similar to flat files. There may be one flat file source or target definition, but there may be multiple flat files with data that are used for testing.
When a Join View is used to flatten an XML structure, it becomes a general definition to process any XML file that conforms to that structure. Thus, the file location and the file name can change even if they are specified in the original dialog used to create the Join View. It is possible to use the same Join View definition to process any file that conforms to that structure.
To use the same name, the path and file name specified in the connection can be over-ridden when the Join View is used in a Table Pair or Single Table. Click the Conn A or Conn B button to show and edit the Connection details.
Only Join Views that flatten a single XML structure and do not include any other tables or files can be over-ridden this way. If the Join View includes other objects or tables, the over-ride is not possible.
