Use SQ query on that table to create rownum with partition by clause based on all column s. Connect the columns and the rownum port to exp. Use filter1 with conditions for rownum=1 and connect the o/p to T1_undup. Connect filter2 with above exp and give condition as rownum=2 and pass it to T1_DUP.

I have two sessions I a workflow like below

workflow1->session1->session2

I have a join_date column in a table in Mapping1 , in session1. I want to pick this join_date value and pass to mpping2/session2

If join date value changes in the table in session1 then the same value should pick and pass to session2. I will use this date value in a query in session2 .

Please suggest how to achieve this?

I have some files that I would like to consolidate into a single database table. The files have similar but different formats. The files look something like this:

FileOne:
•ColA : string
•ColB : string
•ColC : string

FileTwo:
•ColAA : string
•ColBB : string
•ColCC : string

FileThree:
•Col01 : string
•Col02 : string
•Col03 : string

The destination table looks like this:

TableDestination:
•ColFirst : string
•ColSecond : string
•ColThird : string

I want to develop a mapping that ETLs these three files into this one database, but because the column names are different, it looks like I'll have to develop three different mappings, or three different sources, or three different somethings. The problem is that my example is contrived: I actually have many different files that all have different formats and column names, but the data is all very similar.

I would like to develop a single mapping or workflow that can handle all of this by only adding a table that holds the column mappings. Such a table would look like this based on the sample files and sample table above:

TableMappings:
enter image description here

In this way, to edit a column mapping I only have to make an edit this this TableMappings table. I wouldn't have to make any changes at all to the mapping or workflow. Nor would I have to redeploy an application.

What would a mapping or workflow look like that could take advantage of something like this? I assume there'd be a flat file source that takes files from a folder. There would be something in the middle that uses this TableMappings table to map column names. Finally there would be a relational data object that represents my destination database table "TableDestination". I don't know how to put this together though.

My question is very similar to the one below, but on a informatica environment:

Retrieving the index of an inserted row

Here is a brief summary of the issue: I'm trying to figure out how I can insert a row into a table and then find out what the value of the auto_incremented id column was set to so that I can insert additional data into another table. Our target is SQL server 2008. We have a table which has to be populated by informatica ETLs and the application is also using the same table - so, we can't use informatica sequence generator.

In the past when I have used Oracle database, there was a Oracle sequence generator transformation available in Informatica - but for SQL server, I am not sure.

Any solutions please?
