PARSE ACTIVITIES

Data Format Shared Resource


The Data Format resource contains the specification for
parsing or rendering a text string using the Parse Data
and Render Data activities. This shared configuration
resource specifies the type of formatting for the text
(delimited columns or fixed-width columns), the column
separator for delimited columns, the line separator, and
the fill character and field offsets for fixed-width columns.
You must also specify the data schema to use for parsing
or rendering the text.
When parsing text, each column of an input line is
transformed into the corresponding item in the specified
data schema.
