Adding Simple Input Components

To add a simple input to the mapping:

1.Make sure that the mapping window displays the main mapping (not a user-defined function).
2.On the Function menu, click Input.
3.Enter a name and select the data type required for this input. If the input should be treated as a mandatory mapping parameter, select the Input is required check box. For a complete list of settings, see Simple Input Component Settings.


Note:The parameter name can contain only letters, digits, and underscores; no other characters are allowed. This makes it possible for a mapping to work across all code generation languages.


4.Click OK.


Create Input dialog box

You can change later any of the settings defined here (see Simple Input Component Settings).
