Altova MapForce 2023 Professional Edition

This topic explains how to create a new design, select a transformation language, validate and save your mapping.


Create a new design

To be able to carry out a transformation, you will need to create a new mapping design, which can be done in one of the following ways:


Go to the File menu and click New. Then select Mapping and click OK.

Click ic_new in the toolbar. Then select Mapping and click OK.


Select a transformation language

Depending on your MapForce edition, different transformation languages are available. For this tutorial, we have selected XSLT2. You can select this transformation language in one of the following ways:


Click toolbar_xslt2 (XSLT2) in the toolbar.

In the Output menu, click XSLT 2.0.


Validate and save the design

Validating a mapping is an optional step that enables you to see and correct potential mapping errors and warnings before you run the mapping. You can validate your mapping at any stage. To check whether the mapping is valid, do one of the following:


In the File menu, click Validate Mapping.

Click ic-val-mapping (Validate) in the toolbar.


The Messages window displays the validation results as follows:


To save the mapping, do one of the following:


Click Save in the File menu.

Click toolbar_btn_save (Save) in the toolbar.


For your convenience, the mapping created in this tutorial is saved as Tut1_OneToOne.mfd.
