zData Warehouse -- Default Data Warehouse
zData Warehouse is the default, destination data warehouse. Read and write-back data to transform data already in the data ware. See also zData Warehouse (Reimports) in the ETL Objects panel.
Used to created calculated fields, apply formulas, run SQL functions and make other data manipulations to the data warehouse.

ETL Objects Panel
Configures the mapping of ETL Sources to the data warehouse zData Warehouse (Reimports). 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 ETL 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.
A source group is defined as a list of data warehouse tables mapped to a data source in the ETL Source panel.
zData Warehouse (Reimports) is a pre-defined source group linked to the data warehouse. This source group lists mapped tables from the data warehouse re-imported into the data warehouse (for data manipulations).
Tables represent tables in the data warehouse.
AccountClass, etc. through
Sub are tables in OData v4.
Every table consists of one or more table columns.

Green Column Icon: The data warehouse column format has been edited in the Design page.
How to edit column data types and PK
Select a Table in the ETL Objects panel → Design. More at: ETL+ Design Page
ETL SQL Statement Panel
Edits the SQL code (SQL statements) that controls the mapping of the source data connections in the ETL Source panel to the data warehouse tables in ETL Objects panel.
Each SQL statement corresponds to a source group and table from the ETL 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.
Display of the names of the corresponding source group and table on the ETL Objects panel.
ETL SQL Statements. Editable text of SQL code/statement.
How to view or edit SQL for a table.
Select a table on the ETL Objects panel.
The corresponding SQL statement should appear in the ETL 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.
