Working with Flat Files Overview

Working with Flat Files Overview

To use flat files as sources, targets, and lookups in a mapping, you must import or create the definitions in the repository. You can import or create flat file source definitions in the Source Analyzer. You can import or create flat file target definitions in the Target Designer. You can import flat file lookups or use existing file definitions in a Lookup transformation.
Because source definitions must match the source, you should import file source definitions instead of creating them manually.
