The Data Grid transform allows you to enter a static list of rows in a grid, similar to an in-pipeline spreadsheet. This is usually done for testing, reference or demo purposes.
Place a Data grid onto the data orchestration grid. On the Meta tab, add the field names and type and format. Then on the Data tab, add the field values for each data row.
specify the field metadata (output specification) of the data
contains the data. Everything is entered in String format so make sure you use the correct format masks in the metadata tab.
This transform supports metadata injection. It is made up out of 2 parts the meta (field definitions) and the data. The meta requires multiple rows to define the fields. The data part contains 2 injection fields, the first is a concatenated string that contains all values the second is the delimiter used to split that specific row. Mixing delimiters is possible, when empty "," is used as string to split with.
It is not yet possible to insert columns in between 2 existing one or in general re-order the fields in the metadata tab.
If you plan to do this, make sure to copy the data section first to a spreadsheet (Select all rows and copy/paste the whole grid), change the data and copy it back into the data section.
