Creating a Source Definition from a Target Definition

Creating a Source Definition from a Target Definition

You can create a source definition from a target definition or from a shortcut to a target definition.
Drag relational and flat file target definitions into the Source Analyzer to create source definitions. The Designer uses the target definition code page for the matching source definition.
You can create source definitions from the following types of target definitions:
  • Flat file
  • IBM DB2
  • Informix
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • MQ Series
  • Netezza
  • ODBC
  • Oracle
  • Sybase
  • Teradata
  • Vertica
You might want to create a source definition from a target definition if you are staging data, and you need to use the definition as a target in one mapping and a source in another mapping.
