1. Suppose we have a (assume relational) source table Product_Id Month Sales 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 (denoted
by 'x' are stored for each of the 12 months from Jan to Dec). So we want the result 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 this case, explain in terms of transformations.
2. What is a candidate key?
3. Data is passed from one active Trans and one passive Trans into a passive Transformation. Is the
mapping valid or invalid?
4. What will happen if we have a filter transformation used in a mapping and in the filter condition we
specify 1. Yes nothing else, only the number 1. In other words, assuming we have 10 rows coming
to this filter transformation as an input, how many rows will be Output by this transformation when
we have only 1 in the filter condition?
5. What is shortcut in informatica? Difference between shortcuts, reusable object?

95.How can the following be achieved in 1 single Informatica Mapping. * If the Header table record has
error value(NULL) then those records and the corresponding child records in the SUBHEAD and
DETAIL tables should also not be loaded into the target(TARGET1,TARGET 2 or TARGET3). * If
the HEADER table record is valid, but the SUBHEAD or DETAIL table record has an error value
(NULL) then the no data should be loaded into the target TARGET1,TARGET 2 or TARGET3. * If
the HEADER table record is valid and the SUBHEAD or DETAIL table record also has valid
records only then the data should be loaded into the target TARGET1,TARGET 2 and TARGET3.

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 this data into one flat file and remaining in
other flat file.like :- 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 ASAP.

247. Had any one faced informatica(ETL/Developer), Datawarehouseing interview in UK. Than plz help
me (i have any exprience of 3yrs informatica,datawarehousing,oracle,teradata) 1.hw the procedure
will b here 2. wht type of question's they will b asking. 3.In which area they concertate more. since
this is the first time im facing interview in UK. plz help ASAP.it will b a great help for me thanks to
All in Advance

253. how do u use sequence created in oracle in informatica? Explain with an simple example
254. supose if ur scr table contains alphanumeric values like 1,2,3,a,v,c in one columen like c1 n now u
have load d data in 2 seperare columns like ID should contain only numbers 1,2,3 n NAME col
should contain a,b,cin target?How

263. Explain about HLD and LLD ?
264. for ex: in source 10 records are there with column sal. use a filter transformation condition as
Sal=TRUE and connect to target. what will happen.
265. what is tha tracesing level? and difference betweentrace in normal and verbose and nonverbose?

269. i have f;latfile source. i have two targets t1,t2. i want to load the odd no.of records into t1 and even
no.of recordds into t2. what is the procedure and whar t/r's are involved and what is the mapping
flow
270. why cant we put a sequence generator or upd strategy transformation before joiner transformation?

280. we have table like cust_id,cust_name,cust_loc like this 1.we need to get perticular location,to do this
we can use filter transformatin,that logic is same for relation table and flat file tabl?
281. 1.why we need to use unconnected transformation? 2.where we can static chach,dynamic chach

282. What is incremental aggregation and how it is done?


283. How could we generate the sequence of key values without using sequence generator transformation
in the target ??
284. How do we come to know the Source data/file is ready/Updated in the source location, when the
session is scheduled for @12:00AM and ready to run its job ? or Can we schedule the session, when
the source is updated in source location without any time constraint?
285. how do u move the code from development to production?
286. In a scenario I have col1, col2, col3, under that 1,x,y, and 2,a,b and I want in this form col1, col2

record?

transformation can I use?

290. Why is meant by direct and indirect loading options in sessions?

291. what is the logic will you implement to load data into a fact table from n dimension tables?
292. I have 1200 records how can u send it in aggregator with good performance issues?

301. WHAT IS FACT TABLES?
302. In a mapping i have three dimensions. If i want to pass a same surrogate key value to all the three
dimensions by using one sequence generator is possible?If the mapping is containing single flow?
And in the same case if the mapping is contaning 3 flows for the three dimensions then by using one
sequence generator can we populate surrogate key (same value) to all the three dimensions?
