34.How can you delete duplicate records from a flat file and also from a relationalfile?35.What is the method of loading 5 flat files of having same structure to a singletarget and which transformations I can use?36.If am having n rows in my source and I want n+ 1 row in my target what is thelogic that I can go for.37.On a day, I load 10 rows in my target and on next day if I get 10 more rows to beadded to my target out of which 5 are updated rows how can I send them totarget? How can I insert and update the record?38.What is difference between functions and procedures? And what are cursors,indexes (types of indexes and where we can use), triggers (type of triggers), partitions, clusters, exceptions, packages and sequence in oracle.39.What is the logic will you implement to load data into a fact table from ndimension tables?40.How many types of caches are there in informatica?
