You can store up to 16,000,000 bad records per test to perform advanced analysis and up to 1000 bad records for reporting.
For reporting, you can set the maximum number of bad records in the mapping properties in the Preferences dialog box. The default number of bad records is 100. You can set up to 1000 bad records for reporting.
For advanced analysis, you can set the maximum number of bad records for detailed analysis and the file delimiter. You set the properties in the Detailed Error Rows Analysis section in the mapping properties. The default number of bad records is 5000. You can set up to 16,000,000 bad records.
You can store all the bad records from the tests for a table pair or single table. Select Save all bad records for test execution on the Advanced tab when you create or edit a table pair or single table.
Data Validation Option stores the following tests for table pairs:
You must select whether you want to store the bad records in a flat file or a table in the Data Validation Option schema. If you store bad records in a flat file, you can optionally enter the name of the file. Data Validation Option appends test information to the name and retains the file extension.
If you modify the file delimiter in the preferences file, run the InstallTests command with the forceInstall option for the existing table pairs or single tables that you already ran. You can also edit and save the table pair or single table from the Data Validation Client before you run the test. If you modify the bad records value, you need not reinstall the tests.
