Need help on Informatica Scenario

+2 votes

I need your help. I have to work on two scenarios -

There is a informatica workflow WF1 which we need to invoke at 8PM. This worflow will look for a file (ETL.txt) and if this file will not come in another 1hour (9PM), then it will get fail and send mail to support person.If file come on time, then it will run.

In a mapping the source flat file's field separator is comma (,) and if tomorrow this field separator get change to pipe (|), then how we can accomodate the change in worfkow. Is it a way that dynamically we can identity the flat file field separator?

Thanks in advance.

Scenario 1 :- Better to execute the workflow at 9:00 PM and attach an -email task after that session. Check the status of the session if not succeeded then trigger the e-mail to support person.

Scenario 2 :- As per my knowledge we can't change it dynamically. It would be better to identify the data which will be processed and accordingly choose the separator. You can take two separator like ',|' to make it perfect.

In my case, i have an expression transformation which uses the default function ERROR('transformation') to skip the records in which date value coming inside is not in the correct format. In this, the skipped rows are not written to the reject files, so that we are getting the reconcilation problem. I need the skipped rows to be written to the bad files.Please help me how can i achieve this.
