EIM Export Process
To export tables of data, EIM performs a sequence of tasks. Each task involves multiple passes; at least one pass is required for each EIM table included in the process.
To export data to EIM tables, EIM performs the following steps:
- EIM initializes EIM tables for export.
If clear interface Table in the configuration file is true, all rows with the specified batch number are deleted. Otherwise, a warning is issued if rows already exist with the specified batch number. The default configuration file is default.ifb.
- It uses export parameter expressions in the configuration file to locate and export table rows:
- For parent tables, EIM locates child table rows and exports them to their corresponding EIM tables.
NOTE: Transaction logging does not occur during export operations because Siebel base table values are not modified.
