To create a target based on normalized COBOL sources, you first need to analyze the COBOL structure using the Source Analyzer.
When you drag a normalized COBOL source definition into the Target Designer workspace, the Target Designer creates relational target definitions based on the following rules:
The number of tables that appears is one more than the number of OCCURS statements in the COBOL file.
The target table name defaults to the record name.
The generated key name for each table is GK_target_table_name.
The number of generated key names is the number of OCCURS statements minus the number of primary keys.
The following figure shows a sample COBOL source definition with five OCCURS statements:
When you drag the source into the Target Designer workspace, the Designer creates six target definitions.
