Flat File and XML Connection Properties

You must configure the connection properties when you use a flat file or XML data source in a table-pair object, single-table object, join view, lookup view, or an aggregate view.
The following table lists the connection properties for a flat file or XML data source:
Property
Description
Source Dir
Directory that contains the file. The path is relative to the machine that runs the PowerCenter Integration Service.
Source File
File name with the file name extension.
File Type
Type of file. Select one of the following values:
  • File Contains Source Data. Select if the file contains data.
  • File Contains a List of Files. Select if the file contains a list of flat or XML files. When you select a file list, Data Validation Option processes all files in the list.
