Adding a Single Table

Adding a Single Table

You can create a single table from the file menu or from the shortcut in the menu bar.
  1. Select the folder to which you want to add the single table.
  2. Right-click the folder and select
    Add Single Table
    .
    The
    Single Table Editor
    window appears.
  3. Browse and select the data source that you want to use the single table.
    You can search for a data source by name or path. You can search for lookup views, sql views, and join views only with their names.
  4. Click
    Edit
    and configure the connection properties for the table.
  5. Enter the WHERE clause you want to execute on the data source.
  6. Enter the description for the single table.
  7. Enter the external id for the single table.
    You can use the external id to execute the single table from the command line.
  8. If your data source is relational, you can choose whether to execute the WHERE clause within the data source.
    If you choose to execute the WHERE clause within the database, PowerCenter Integration Service passes the WHERE clause to the database for execution before data loading.
  9. Select the database optimization level.
    The following options are available:
    • Default. Data Validation Option creates a PowerCenter mapping based on the test logic and applies sorting on the data source.
    • WHERE clause, sorting, and aggregation in DB. Data Validation Option pushes the WHERE clause and sorting to the database. Applicable for relational data sources.
    • Already sorted input. Data Validation Option creates a PowerCenter mapping based on the test logic. If the data source is not sorted, the tests may fail.
  10. Select the primary key for the table in the
    Key Column
    pane.
