Mapping and Loading Tables

  • To view tables available from your SQL database on the left panel, right-click the SQL source → Refresh.

  • To map a SQL table to the data warehouse, double-click its name on the left panel, or right-click on it → Add Table.

    • You’ll now see the table added/mapped to the center panel.

  • To preview its data, right-click the table on the center panel → Preview.

  • To load its data to the data warehouse, right-click the table on the center panel → Load Now.

  • Click the Log icon (top right) to view data load results. Log page help here.

Schedule the Data Load

  • On the ETL main page, click Refresh Batch (top right icon on the center panel).

  • Select a Refresh Batch or create a new one to load your SQL data on a schedule (help here) → on the right panel, be sure the SQL tables to load have their boxes checked and in the desired load order.

  • To load them now, click the Refresh Batch Now (play icon) on the left panel for the desired Refresh Batch.

  • To schedule the data load:

    • Click WTS Settings -> enter the WTS parameters → Apply.

    • This step might require you to run ETL+ app as “Run as administrator” in Windows.

  • Click Close -> Close.


After ETL+ has loaded your SQL tables, this is to check if the data extraction process finished successfully and row count per extracted table matches with your SQL tables.


  • Login to ETL+ (help here).

  • On the ETL main page, click the top-right Log icon. Log page help here.

  • Scroll down on the log page and double-check that no table load failed, and the row count matches with the source SQL tables. Following is an example highlighting two tables from a sample SQL database and their loaded row count.
