Go to Session> Config Object > Error Handling > Error Log Type > Flat File and give the flat file location details.
Note: This option is effective from Informatica 9 onwards

The source file name in my project starts with a number for example 20070908abcd.csv. Informatica is not allowing to read the source in the designer and displays the following message:
The first character in this name cannot be a number.

Could you please let me know how to handle as many source files are of this format?

I have developed an Informatica PowerDesigner 9.1 ETL Job which uses lookup and an update transform to detect if the target table has the the incoming rows from the source or not. I have set for the Update transform a condition

IIF(ISNULL(target_table_surrogate_id), DD_INSERT, DD_REJECT)

Now, when the incoming row is already in the target table, the row is rejected. Informatica writes these rejected rows into a .bad file. How to prevent this? Is there a way to determine that the rejected rows are not written into a .bad file? Or should I use e.g. a router insted of an update transform to determine if the row is insert row an then discard the other rows?
