An existing production Multiload is dropping records where the value coming in does not fit the table definition.
We can not change the way that the input is created. I was hoping that a case statement in the Multiload would enable me to set invalid values to null.
.FIELD USAGE_YEAR_BEG_VAL * CHAR(4);
Begin_Usage_Dy BYTEINT, Begin_Usage_Mo BYTEINT,
I tried to evaluate the data and change it to nulls when there is bad data but adding the following to the Multiload did not change the results plus it converted records containing spaces to 0 and records with values such as '1_ ' were still dropped.
, case when substr(:USAGE_YEAR_BEG_VAL, 3,2) between -128 and 127 then substr(:USAGE_YEAR_BEG_VAL, 3,2) else null End , case when substr(:USAGE_YEAR_BEG_VAL, 1,2) between -128 and 127 then substr(:USAGE_YEAR_BEG_VAL, 1,2) else null End
Is there anything I can do in the Multiload or am I going to have to change the table definitions to Char(2)?
