Procedure

  1. Double-click tFileInputDelimited to open its Component view.
  2. In the File name/Stream field, browse to, or enter the path to the file storing the customer records to be read.
  3. Click the button to open the schema editor where you need to create the schema to reflect the structure of the customer data.
  4. Click the button five times to add five rows and rename them as follows: FirstName, LastName, City, Address and ZipCode.
    In this scenario, we leave the data types with their default value String. In the real-world practice, you can change them depending on the data types of your data to be processed.
  5. Click OK to validate these changes and accept the propagation prompted by the pop-up dialog box.
  6. If needs be, complete the other fields of the Component view with values corresponding to your data to be processed. In this scenario, we leave them as is.
