Creating a Target from a Normalizer Transformation

Creating a Target from a Normalizer Transformation

You can create a target from a source qualifier or pipeline Normalizer transformation. When you create a target from a Normalizer transformation, the Designer creates one target and includes all the columns from the Normalizer. It does not create separate targets to represent the record hierarchies or multiple-occurring fields in the Normalizer transformation.
The following figure shows a Normalizer transformation in a mapping with a COBOL source definition:
Output ports in the source definition are connected to input ports in the Normalizer transformation. The source definition includes the following records with OCCURS clauses: DETAIL_DATA and SUPPLIER_INFO.
The Normalizer transformation, Norm_Company_Sales, represents the hierarchical data structure of the Company_Sales COBOL source definition. When you create a target from the Norm_Company_Sales transformation, the Designer flattens the hierarchies in the transformation into one target. The target includes the generated keys from the Normalizer transformation and the generated column ID (GCID) for the multiple-occurring records, DETAIL_DATA and SUPPLIER_INFO.
