You can create a reusable transformation to reuse in multiple mappings or mapplets. Or, you can create a non-reusable transformation to use one time in a mapping or mapplet.
To create a reusable transformation, click
and complete the wizard.
To create a non-reusable transformation in a mapping or mapplet, select a transformation from the Transformation palette and drag the transformation to the editor.
Certain transformations require you to choose a mode or perform additional configuration when you create the transformation. For example, when you create a Lookup transformation, you must choose a data object to use as a lookup source.
After you create a transformation, it appears in the editor. Some transformations contain predefined ports and groups. Other transformations are empty.
