CommonUsage

 

 

SQL File Export statistics and information in the exported file

The idea is to export data of a rdbms table to a file with SQL File Export, and then add at the beginning of the file:

  • File's name
  • Number of rows exported

Process Overview

As you can see, we first export the table and then write a header line containing the information retrieved with the help of Process variables.

Example of result:

Writing the result of a SQL Select

We have here the same goal as the previous example, but we want to add some more information about the execution.

More precisely, we want to add the result of a query.

Process Overview

processWithSelectBind

We simply added a SQL Operation which executes a select statement, and we binded it to the write file.

Then, we are using the result with :{columnName}: syntax.

Tip:
