Auto mapping target fields from source in informatica

+1 vote

I hav a source structure in informatica like

col1 number   col2 varchar(40)   col3 DATE   col4 varchar(50)   col5 number

and my target definition is like

col4 varchar(50)   col1 number  col5 number  col3 varchar(40)  col3 DATE

If i want to load the source records into target i will map the columns appropriately from source to target in a zig zag way

I just want to know that if there is any concept like informatica will automap fields from source to target based on column names i.e if the target columns are shuffled but the column names are the same ...

any suggestions regarding the same would be helpful ..

PowerCenter can automatically link ports between transformations both by position and by name.

You should use the latter: Layout > Autolink by Name, the mapping object that you want to link (e.g. source) and drag the selected ports to another mapping object (e.g. target).

My source File Description:
In creating a mapping in Informatica designer where in my source is a fat file which is the collection of different types of data, as in customer details from customer table, his enrollment details from enrollment table and few more tables like this.
In this scenario how do I proceed in creating mapping and transformation to target?
If it were a single source file I define a simple source and target mapping.
