Couple of tables in our Database doesm't have any key. However, key was created in target table at informatica level.

Use the following Metadata Exchange (MX) Views:
REP_TARG_TBLS provides a list of targets in the repository
REP_TARG_TBL_COLS provides the properties of columns defined for the target tables in a data warehouse or data mart
It contains a column COLUMN_KEYTYPE that takes of the following values:

Primary Key, Not a Key, Foreign Key, Primary and Foreign Key.

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?

In my source table data is

s1 ,   p1,     10
s1 ,   p2,     xyz
s1 ,   p3 ,    abc
s2 ,   p1 ,    20
s2 ,   p2 ,    xyz
s2 ,   p3 ,    abc

I want two target tables, first table is based on s_name s1, second table based on s_name s2. Both table contains contains p_name and value.

The target table data like as

Table s1

p1,    10
p2,    xyz
p3,    abc 

Table s2

p1,    20
p2,    xyz
p3,    abc

Can anyone of you please elaborate on how to map the informatica for the inserts and updates to the target from source table?
