Hi All,

          I am completely new to this and i have a basic question. I was just taking some classes on DS and i came up with a question. How do i know what kind of errors are there in the heterogeneous data sources that iam going to stage. Say if it has 1 million records. I know that i cant go through each and every record and i also think that i cant write a sql code because i dont know what kind of errors it has. Please do let me know how the flow or process actually works?

    Hi Raghu

    You need to define what is valid data, and use a validation transform to validate the data.

    For eg: If customer name can be maximum 30 chars, cannot contain special chars…..create a validation logic for the same,  the data passing through a validation transform are divided into “pass” and “fail” records. You can create such validation rules for all columns of a table in a single validation transform.

    Hi Raghu,

    As told by Debapriya Mandal you can use Validation transform & use its both the options of “Pass” & “Fail” . You attach another table for Fail condition so all the failed records are inserted in that table & you can see & analise the errors.
