Case Sensitivity of Header Records Is Lost After Update of "IKM SQL To File Append" with ODI 11g Mandatory Changes (Doc ID 1684203.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 02, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator on Marketplace - Version 1.0.2 to 1.0.2
Oracle Data Integrator - Version to [Release 11gR1 to 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

mycol1        (observe lower case letter is used)
MyCol2        (observe mixed case letter is used)
MYCOL3        (observe upper case letter is used)

The header record before upgrade to ODI 11g was generated with the exact names above (respecting the type case)...

MYCOL1        (observe upper case letter is used instead of expected lower case)
MYCOL2        (observe upper case letter is used instead of expected mixed case)
MYCOL3        (observe upper case letter is used)
