Importing a Target Definition

Importing a Target Definition

You can import the following target definitions:
  • Flat file.
    The Target Designer uses the Flat File Wizard to import a target definition from a flat file that matches the structure of the flat file.
  • Relational table.
    You can import a relational table to create a target definition that matches the structure of the relational table.
  • XML file.
    You can import an XML target definition from an XML, DTD, or XML schema file.
To import a relational target definition, you need to configure connectivity between the target database and the PowerCenter Client.
Use a target definition in a mapping after you have added it to the repository.
