INSERTALLRECORDS

Valid For

Replicat

Description

Use the INSERTALLRECORDS parameter to keep a record of all operations made to a target record, instead of maintaining just the current version. INSERTALLRECORDS causes Replicat to insert every change that is made to a record as a new record in the database. The initial insert and subsequent updates and deletes are maintained as point-in-time snapshots.

Some cases for using INSERTALLRECORDS are the following:

  • To work within an exceptions MAP statement. In an exceptions MAP statement, INSERTALLRECORDS causes the values of operations that generated errors to be inserted as new records in an exceptions table as part of an error-handling strategy.

  • To maintain a transaction history. By inserting every change to a specific row as a new record in the database, you can maintain a history of all changes made to that row, instead of maintaining just the current version. Each insert is a point-in-time snapshot that can be queried as needed for auditing purposes. Combining historical data with special transaction information provides a way to create a more useful target reporting database.

INSERTALLRECORDS can be used at the root level of the parameter file to affect all subsequent MAP statements, and it can be used within a MAP statement to affect a specific table or multiple tables specified with a wildcard.
