Let's not discuss about manually modifying the data of flat file.Let's assume that the target is a flat file. I want to update the data in the flat file target based on the input source rows. Like we use update strategy/ target properties in case of relational targets for update; do we have any options in the session or maaping to perform a similar task for a flat file target?I have heard about the append option in INFA 8.x. This may be helpful for incremental load in the flat file.But this is not a workaround for updating the rows.Please post your views.

You can modify the flat file using shell scripting in unix ( awk, grep, sed ).Hope this helps.

The update transformation/strategy uses the concept of keys, in order to update the target table. As flat file do not have any Keys defined on it, it is not possible to update the target,. which is a flat file.
