Use the Data Validation Client to configure validation tests and the test components. Configure a test based on a table object.
You create a table object to define the set of data that you want to validate. To define the set of data, you add one or more PowerCenter data sources or data validation views. Then you configure information such as key fields, WHERE clause, and connections.
After you create a table object, you can create one or more tests to validate the set of data. After you run the test, you can run summary and detailed reports to view test results.
