Ranking string values

Ranking string values

You can configure the Rank transformation to return the top or bottom values of a string field. To sort string fields,
Data Integration
uses the session sort order configured for the
mapping
task.
You set the
Session Sort Order
property in the advanced session properties for the
mapping
task. You can select binary or a specific language such as Danish or Spanish. If you select binary,
Data Integration
calculates the binary value of each string and sorts the strings using the binary values. If you select a language,
Data Integration
sorts the strings alphabetically using the sort order for the language.
The following image shows the
Session Sort Order
property in the advanced session properties for a
mapping
task:
The Session Sort Order property appears in the advanced session properties of a mapping task. Advanced session properties are at the bottom of the Schedule page.
