zData Warehouse is the target/destination data warehouse. Read and write-back data to transform data already in the data warehouse. See also zData Warehouse (Reimports) in the Target Objects panel.
Used to created calculated fields, apply formulas, run SQL functions and make other data manipulations to the data warehouse.
Target Objects Panel
The center section of the Target Objects panel is a hierarchical menu consisting of target tables grouped by data source and target column names.
Configures the mapping of Source Objects to Target Objects. Allows data warehouse table maintenance and data load. Lists the tables and columns mapped to the data warehouse grouped by data source.
Select a table to view its mapping on the Extract SQL Statement panel.
Expand/collapse the list of tables by clicking the
+/-icon by the Source Group (header).
Double-click a table to enable expand/collapse.
Right-click Target Objects (target databases, tables or columns)
A target object is a list of data warehouse tables mapped to a data source in the Source Objects panel.
zData Warehouse (Reimports) is a pre-defined source linked to the data warehouse. This source lists tables from the data warehouse re-imported into the data warehouse (for data manipulations).
Target Tables represent tables in the data warehouse.
Every table consists of one or more table columns.
Double-click a table or right-click it → Show Columns →
+/- to expand/collapse its list of columns.
Types of Table Columns
PK (Primary Key) icon: Columns that are part of the table’s primary key.
Black column icon: The data warehouse column format is the same as from the source.
Green column Icon: The data warehouse column format has been edited in the Design page.
How to edit column data types and PK
Each SQL statement corresponds to a source group and table from the Target Objects panel. The output of the SQL
SELECT statement loads into the destination data warehouse displayed just below the page title. See Data Warehouse info.
Extract SQL Statement panel (Load All)
Display of the names of the corresponding source group and table on the Target Objects panel.
Extract SQL Statement. Editable text of SQL code/statement.
To view or edit SQL for a table: Select a table on the Target Objects panel. The corresponding SQL statement should appear in the Extract SQL Statement panel.
Use the SQL Statement syntax of the data source. Look at the SQL syntax for MS SQL Server sources in MS SQL Server, Providex syntax for for the Providex ODBC, etc.
Load Type: Controls how the data load process for the selected table.
