    Default Selecting fields

    Hi,
    This is a very basic question.
    I am trying to load particular fields of csv files into another file.I have deleted some fields in the input and tried to copy the data to out file.But even though I removed the attributes data is not removed and remaining fields are holding the data of deleted fields.I tried with select values also.But the problem is not solved.
    How can I get the seleted input fields along with their own data into another file.

    Thanks

    you probably have to do a "get fields" on the text input file step.

    Hi,

    I used getfields and got the fields.Then I have deleted some fields.Only the field names are deleted and data is retained .this data is now with different name.


    Thanks

    aaaaaaaaaaaaah... you cannot delete columns in the text input step... you have to first read the text input and then remove the fields with "select values" step.

    Not much more to say on it without more information, a transformation or so?
