PowerCenter - Data Stencil
1 - About
Data Stencil uses the Microsoft Office Visio interface to create mapping templates. When you work with a mapping template, you use the following main areas:
- Data Integration stencil. Displays shapes that represent PowerCenter mapping objects. Drag a shape from the Data Integration stencil to the drawing window to add a mapping object to a mapping template.
- Data Integration toolbar. Displays buttons for tasks you can perform on a mapping template. Contains the online help button.
- Drawing window. Work area for the mapping template. Drag shapes from the Data Integration stencil to the drawing window and set up links between the shapes. Set the properties for the mapping objects and the rules for data movement and transformation.
Data Stencil initially displays an empty drawing window.
