I would like to generate an empty delimited file if my dataflow returns no data. I am able to do this by typing FOCUS code (select edit as text on the dataflow) but would like to know if it is possible to do this by using the graphical user interface only. The reason I want to know, is because, once you've made changes to the FOCUS code, if you save the graphical user interface, your FOCUS code is overwritten. I am hoping there is a magical setting somewhere that will either enable me to enable the generation of empty extract files and / or retain my FOCUS code by somehow protecting it. Any suggestions are much appreciated!
probably better to post this in the iway forum where Data migrator issues are discussed
