Suppose we have a (assume relational) source table Product_Id Month Sale

s 1 Jan x 1 Feb x . . . . . . 1 Dec x 2 Jan x 2 Feb x . . . . . . 2 Dec x 3 Jan
x 3 Feb x . . . . . . 3 Dec x . . . . . . and so on. Assume that there could
be any number of product keys and for each product key the sales figures (denote
d by 'x' are stored for each of the 12 months from Jan to Dec). So we want the r
esult in the target table in the following form. Product_id Jan Feb March.. Dec
1 x x x x 2 x x x x 3 x x x x . . So how will you design the ETL mapping for thi
s case, explain in terms of transformations.

my PC , please give me the solution and waiting for solution
244. when i was running the seesion, after loading 100 records, session sudde
nly fails.Next time i want to load the remaing rows in target with out truncate
target table.What should i use?
245. hi all, i have 1 flat file having 10 rows. like:- id name amt 100 a 100
200 b 200 100 n 300 400 p 3000 100 a 100 600 x 6000 Now i want to load half of t
his data into one flat file and remaining in other flat :- flat file 1
id name amt 100 a 100 200 b 200 100 n 300 ---------------------- --------------
-------- flat file 2 id name amt 400 p 3000 100 a 100 600 x 6000 Plz reply me AS
