[CLOSED] Data Migrator: Question on Target transformations expression/validate

I have a data flow in Data Migrator which has a flat file as a source and SQL server table as a target.
The target table has 6 columns. Depends on the source data, If record at target exists, updating 4 columns at the target. If the record does not exist, inserting new record with data to all 6 columns.

For now, I create a flow and add 2 target to the same table. One target performs INSERT, one target performs UPDATE.


Is this a good approach? Could we setup this requirement under 1 target transformation only?
Thanks for your comment/suggestion.

Regards,

David Nguyen

Hi David,

This is a friendly follow-up regarding your question about on Target transformations expression/validate. Speaking with a Data Migrator consultant just briefly it was suggested that you should be able to insert/update to one target. Validate is important in this situation. Have you opened a case to discuss this further or found a solution to your question?

Open a case at: Information Builders Technical Support

Or call 800-736-6130 and a Tech Support representative will be happy to open a case for you.

Take care and have a nice day,
