Creating Fixed Value Links

Use a fixed value link when your target field is not derived from a source field. Examples are system time, data source name, and any other target information that may not be present in the source.

To create a Fixed Value Link

  1. In the Workbench, select the target field and click Formula. The Edit Formula dialog box appears.
  2. Create the formula to apply to the target field.

    Note: When configuring a formula for a fixed value link, text strings must be enclosed in double quotes. See the syntax examples.
