Maintaining Targets and Target Definitions

Maintaining Targets and Target Definitions

In addition to creating target definitions, you can complete the following tasks in the Target Designer:
  • Reimport target definitions.
    When the target structure changes significantly, you can reimport the target definition to make sure it is correct.
  • Edit target definitions.
    Edit target definitions to add comments or key relationships, or update them to reflect changed target definitions.
  • Create relational tables in the target database.
    If the target tables do not exist in the target database, you can generate and execute the necessary SQL code to create the target table that matches the target definition.
  • Preview relational and flat file target data.
    You can preview the data of relational and flat file target definitions in the Designer.
  • Compare target definitions.
    You can compare two target definitions to identify differences between them.
