Rules and Guidelines for Parameters

Rules and Guidelines for Parameters

Certain rules and guidelines apply when you add a parameter to the WHERE clause of a single-table or table-pair.
Use the following rules and guidelines when you add a parameter to a WHERE clause:
  • You must add the parameters to the parameter file before you can add the parameters to a table pair or single table definition.
  • The parameters in the parameter file must be in the format
    $$<parameter name>=<value>
    .
  • Place the parameter file in a location that is accessible by the Data Validation Client or DVOCmd that runs the tests.
  • If you place the parameter file on a UNIX machine, the Data Validation Client on Windows cannot access the parameter file. In this case, install DVOCmd on the UNIX machine and verify that DVOCmd has access to the parameter file.
  • When you specify the location of the parameter file in the Data Validation Client, enter the parameter file location as a network path. For example, if the Informatica services runs on Windows, use the following syntax:
    \\<Host name of the Informatica services machine>\<shared folder path>\<parameter file name>
  • You can use a parameter file for one or more table pairs and single tables.
