Thread: Any way to get the disposition of an Insert/Update step?

  1. #1

    Question Any way to get the disposition of an Insert/Update step?

    I'd like to know in subsequent steps, whether a row was inserted OR updated in a prior Insert/Update step.

    Is there a way to do this without having to resort to a (rather ugly and inefficient) "Merge rows (diff)"?

    Also I would prefer not to have to do a Lookup prior to the Insert/Update. That too is not efficient.

    Thanks

    The rows are passed unchanged, so you don't get that information for free.
    If you desperately need it afterwards, you will have to prepare for it - batch version and timestamps - the usual stuff.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
