SAS ETL Studio CaseStudy – Adding A Source Table Definition
Using the Source Designer
The Source Designer is a wizard that generates metadata for one or more selected tables, based on the physical structure of the table(s).
The Source Designer can be used to specify metadata for any existing table, not just tables used as data sources for ETL jobs.
The Source Designer supports a number of specific data formats that have been licensed for a site. The specific format will often give better results than the generic format, which has not been optimized for particular kinds of data. Use the format that most closely matches your data whenever possible.
The Source Designer is an easy to use wizard interface.
