In this lesson, you create a mapping that contains a source, multiple transformations, and a
target.

A transformation is a part of a mapping that generates or modifies data. Every mapping
includes a Source Qualifier transformation, representing all data read from a source and
temporarily stored by the Integration Service. In addition, you can add transformations that
calculate a sum, look up a value, or generate a unique ID before the source data reaches the
target.

The following table lists the transformations displayed in the Transformation toolbar in the
Designer:
