The All Steps tab allows you to apply certain conditions on all of the steps in a DTS file and to make changes to how data is committed.
Note: Features on the All Steps tab cannot be used with bulk mode steps. See Using Bulk Operations for more information.
The Step Conditions section allows you to specify some features when updating, inserting, or deleting records during a DTS run.
Note: Not all features are available for
all connections. If the feature is not available for the selected connection,
it is unavailable.
The Allow multirecord matches and Compare field on updates features are mutually exclusive. If one is selected, the other is always unavailable.
For bulk mode steps, these features are not available and Insight ignores the settings. They can be used in non-bulk steps within a DTS that has bulk mode steps.
The step conditions are:
|Step Result||Default Actions|
|Failure||Stop processing, rollback STEP, log error|
|Success (0)||Continue processing, commit STEP, no error|
|Success (1)||Continue processing, commit STEP, no error|
|Success (>1)||Stop processing, rollback STEP, log error|
|Commit each step individually||Each step is committed to the database after being processed successfully.|
|Commit all steps together||
All steps associated with processing one source row are committed to the database at the same time.
|Commit repeating data together||
All steps associated with processing a repeating group of source rows are committed to the database at the same time. If there is an error, all operations for all source rows in the current repeating group are recorded as failures, and previously executed transactions for the current repeating group are rolled back. Any other source rows in the repeating group are not processed.
The application moves through the source data until it either finds a row that does not match the current repeating group, or until it hits the end of the source data.
This option is only available if you are using the Skip if Repeated feature.
|Commit specified number of source rows together||
Select this option to commit a block of transactions at one time. You also must indicate the number of source rows to process.
Committing every 100 source rows is the default and recommended interval. Committing larger blocks of transactions at one time can increase performance, depending on the environment. However, as with bulk operations, consider the result when setting the Source rows per transaction value.
|Commit all rows together||
Select this option to commit all source rows at one time.
Generally, you would use this option when processing messages, rather than rows from a database or file. For example, an XML order with many line items should be processed with the Commit all rows together option enabled to avoid inserting a partial order.
The Commit all rows together and Commit repeating data together options are used to maintain data integrity at the row or repeating group level. These options ensure that incomplete transactions are not committed, when, for example, you use separate insert steps on the header data and its related detail data. If it is acceptable for a source row to be partially committed to a target, consider using Commit specified number of source rows to improve performance.
Note: The rollback
option is not supported for Commit all rows together or Commit specified number of source rows together options. If an error occurs while
processing the rows, it is counted as failed and written to the
rejected row table (if that feature is enabled). All other rows processed
are committed to the database.
Commit is not available when committing All Steps or Repeating Data. Data is committed when the source row or block of repeating data is completed successfully. You can not control how the data is committed for these two commit levels.
Step control can also be conditionally controlled based on the result of a formula.
