Overview of EIM Export Processing

To export data, EIM reads the data in the Siebel database tables and places the information in the appropriate EIM tables. You can then copy data from the EIM tables into another database. The export process generally populates the applicable EIM table with a row for every Siebel base table row encountered. As a consequence, where EIM tables have mappings to multiple Siebel base tables, one export operation can generate multiple rows within the EIM table governing the rows encountered within the Siebel base tables.

During its multiple passes through the EIM tables, EIM performs the following tasks:

EIM then provides comprehensive status information about each export process. When the process ends, you should review this information. See EIM Export Process for more details on how EIM functions in the export process.

The following tasks comprise an EIM export process:

Upon completion of the EIM process, your database administrator can access the EIM tables and extract the data for use in a non-Siebel application.
