Deleting Source Records

Introduction  Previous Topic  Next Topic

During the mapping or execution phase you may discover unwanted records in your source file. Although you could delete the records from the original database and recreate the source, IMU offers an alternative interactive means of deleting source records without ever leaving the application.


To illustrate the procedure, open the sample source file EXAMPLE_SOURCE.TXT and display the source page. Notice that records 3 and 6 are NULL (contain no data whatsoever). Using the navigation buttons, move to record 3, the first NULL record. Now click the delete button (pageSource_Delete) in order to remove the record.


note Notes


Deleted records are temporarily removed from the source file until saved (see source file group).
Source records are automatically renumbered after each deletion.
