Information in this document applies to any platform.


After using smart export/smart import to migrate mappings from Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) to ODI, the mappings which use "IKM SQL to File Append" do not generate the header attributes in the target file in the correct order. The mapped columns are generated before the unmapped columns, which causes the data to be populated to the file in the wrong order resulting in mismatch of the header column data with the column value data.


1. Target file attributes are defined as follows:

However, the data is loaded in the correct format, resulting in a header to data value mismatch:

Header order:         First_name,last_name,landline,fax,pincode,state,age,mobile
Data Value order:    First_name,last_name,age,mobile,landline,fax,pincode,state
