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.

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?
