Creating a Target Definition from a Source Definition

Creating a Target Definition from a Source Definition

When you want to create a target definition that closely matches a source definition, you can use the source definition to create the target definition. You can also use a shortcut to a source definition to create the target definition. You can drag the following source definitions into the Target Designer to create target definitions:
  • Relational sources
  • Flat file sources
  • COBOL sources
  • XML sources
After you create the matching target definition, you can add or edit target properties and change the target type. When you create a relational target definition, you can generate the target table in the target database.
