RE: Why we use lookup transformations?
Nice Question If we don't have a look our datawarehouse will be have more unwanted duplicates
Use a Lookup transformation in your mapping to look up data in a relational table view or synonym.Import a lookup definition from any relational database to which both the Informatica Client and Servercan connect. You can use multiple Lookup transformations in a mappingCheers
