Source View

Introduction  Previous Topic  Next Topic

The Source View, shown below, appears on the left hand side of the Mapping page. When a source file is opened, IMU reads the header (first) record. Fields within the header (source fields) are then enumerated and displayed in the source view.

As mentioned in the Header Group topic, descriptive header records facilitate the mapping process. The source view listing above illustrates a descriptive header.

 

note Notes

 

The No. column displays the position of each field within the record.
The illustration above is the actual header record from the comma delimited text file EXAMPLE_SOURCE.TXT, which is included with IMU for illustrative purposes.
