DataMigrater allow to set variable within the process to select columns or table. my objective is for user to input parameters to select which table and which column(s) to do transformation into which target(there is minimum 3 input from user). any ideas or thought ?This message has been edited.

This is completely untested and just an idea. If WebFOCUS is on the same machine as DataMigrator create a WebFOCUS html form to prompt the user for that info and create a hold file saved in an app folder DataMigrator has access to. Then create a flow that is triggered by a file listener. In that flow you can have a stored procedure as the first object that reads that file and creates the variables you want. But the big thing is DataMigrator flows are dependent on master files and specific SQL logic so I don't know how it will work for you. Just wanted to give you an idea to try though.
Thank you for using Focal Point!

Its been a while since I used DM and now I use Informatica Cloud (IICS). The way they handle passing parameter is that Tasks can have configuration files associated with them. In these files variables can be set to be used in a task. We change the content of the parameter file if we want to change a variable value. In our case the table schema name is a variable that is used in a Select statement. i.e. SELECT ID FROM $SCHEMA.MYTABLE
So can't DM have a fex with -SET & commands in it which is called prior to the Process Flow being run that can be used it the flow?
