Configuring Target File Properties

Configuring Target File Properties

If you write to target files with FTP, specify the target file properties after you specify the FTP connection for the target instance. The target file properties determine the reject file and directory and staging location. Specify target file properties in the Properties settings on the Mapping tab.
If you stage the target file, configure the target file name and directory and the reject file name and directory. If you do not stage the target file, configure the reject file and directory. The Integration Service uses the remote file name and directory from the FTP connection object.
If you have the Partitioning option, you can also select merge file properties.
The following table describes the target file attributes on the Mapping tab:
Attribute
Description
Output File Directory
Name and path of the local target file directory used to stage the target data. By default, the Integration Service uses the service process variable directory, $PMTargetFileDir. The Integration Service concatenates this field with the Output file name field when it runs the session.
If you do not stage the target file, the Integration Service uses the file name and directory from the FTP connection object.
The Integration Service ignores this field if you enter a fully qualified file name in the Output file name field.
Output File Name
Name of the local target file used to stage the target data. You can enter the file name, or the file name and path. If you enter a fully qualified file name, the Integration Service ignores the Output file directory field.
If you do not stage the source file, the Integration Service uses the remote file name and default directory from the FTP connection object.
