Adding an output component by dragging from an input one

About this task

Now you will add the third component, a tFileOutputDelimited, to write the data read from the source file into another text file. You will add the component by dragging from the tLogRow component, which serves as an input component to the new one to be added.


  1. Click the tLogRow component, and drag and drop the arrow icon displayed onto the design workspace.
    A text field and a component list appear. The component list shows all the components that can be connected with the input component.
    Design workspace.
  2. To narrow the search, type in the text field the name of the component you want to add or part of it, or a phrase describing the component's functionality if you don't know its name, and then double-click the component of interest, tFileOutputDelimited in this example, on the component list to add it onto the design workspace.
    Information noteNote: Components may not always have a prefix letter in the name. Therefore, as a best practice, you may want to simply specify the main body when searching for a component by its name.
    The new component is automatically connected with the input component tLogRow, using a Row Main connection.
    Design workspace with the two components and a connection between them.
