Column Export stage in DataStage

Column Export stage

The Column Export stage exports data from a number of columns of different data types into a single column with the data type ustring, string, or binary.

The Column Export stage is a restructure stage. It can have a single input link, a single output link and a single rejects link. It is the complementary stage to Column Import (see Column Import stage).

The input data column definitions determine the order in which the columns are exported to the single output column. Information about how the single column being exported is delimited is given in the Formats section on the Input tab. You can optionally save reject records. Reject records are records that's export was rejected.

In addition to exporting a column you can also pass other columns straight through the stage. For example, you could pass a key column straight through.

When you double-click the stage, the properties panel opens. The properties panel has three tabs:

  • Stage. This is always present and is used to specify general information about the stage.
  • Input. This is where you specify details about the data set having its duplicates removed.
  • Output. This is where you specify details about the processed data being output from the stage.
