Record count increases in PreSQL-Informatica in the absence of Semicolon(;), Database : Teradata

0 votes

My PreSQL query in the WorkFlow of Informatica has 2 parts:

Insert query
Refresh Stats procedure call
When no semicolon ; is present between these 2 parts, the record count is given in Millions. When a semicolon ';' is present the record count is given in Thousands.

Two Questions:

Why is it not throwing an Error for the absence of a semicolon?
Why the increased record count?

From the documentation:

Use a semicolon (;) to separate multiple statements. The Integration Service issues a commit after each statement.
The Designer does not validate the SQL.

It will not throw an error in power center because is not validating it. You can check logs on what SQL is getting passed to teradata and execute the same outside (any other client) to investigate on the row count diffference.

PreSQL and postSQL in Informatica is not getting executed.


I have table in Microsoft SQL server. I am trying to update/insert this table using Informatica powercenter session by calling SP through Stored Procedure Transformation. But its not happening. After further digging up, I got to know that reason behind this are triggers on table that we are trying to update/insert. There are couple of triggers defined on the table and it has got on insert and on update triggers also. So I thought of disabling all the triggers on the table in PreSQL and enable them back again in postSQL of the session that I am running. But its not working. However when I execute the trigger disable statement directly on DB through Microsoft SQL server client and run the session, session is updating/inserting the records.

Below are the Presql and postSQL commands used by me:



Please let me know if I am going wrong anywhere/if there is any possible resolution for this.

I am trying to get a resultset from Teradata stored Procedure to my Mapping.

The stored procedure is to hold multiple select statements and the final output is to be sent to informatica. Below is a sample of how the select statement looks like

sel 'INH1' AS QC_CODE,count(*) from Table 1 
sel 'INH2' AS QC_CODE,count(*) from Table 2   
sel 'INH3' AS QC_CODE,count(*) from table 3

I need a stored procedure that can send the output of the above query (2 columns, 3 records) to Informatica, where I can call the stored procedure in my source qualifier or through SP transformation

Any help??
