Data Migrator -- How do I get a count AFTER the join?
I'm looking to develop a new key value for the table I'm inserting records into, so I need to take the current highest key and add one. I have the highest key part worked out and it's simple enough to create a counter on the input file, but in cases where not every record is inserted, it ends up producing gaps in the key numbering. I shouldn't care, but my customer is a neatnik and doesn't want those gaps. How do you set a sequential number to only the records that clear the join conditions and filter settings in Data Migrator?

Belay that order -- I got it. No record counter needed on the left hand side. I now have

IF LAST NDC_LIST_KEY EQ 0 THEN MAX_NDC_LIST_KEY + 1
ELSE LAST NDC_LIST_KEY + 1

In my new key value definition and I get the sequential set that I want. Easier than having the counter too.
