Data Transfer - Target - Options

In the target options, a type of data transfer can be defined. With the Replace existing data transfer option, all data in the target data group will be replaced. The Attach all data option will allow you to keep existing data in the target data group. The transferred data will be added to the file.

In the area Write Options the data transfer can be done step by step when the setting Write block by block with ...records per block. Enter an integer number here in order to define the size of each block. The setting Use Transaction if supported will be executed when a data transfer uses an appropriate source or an appropriate target where transactions are supported.

Selecting the Attach new data option will show all fields of the target data group in the right-hand area of the window. Select the fields here whose value can be used to identify a data record as new. These fields must be connected with a corresponding field of the target data group in the field assignment in order for the value to be transferred from the source data upon each import.

With the Refresh existing data option existing data will be refreshed, if changes were made to the source data group since the last update.

The Refresh existing data, attach new data option corresponds to the Attach new data option, with the difference being that existing records in the target data group will be updated, i.e. refreshed, if changes were made to the source data group since the last update.
