    you can define a database mapping in the table output step to define which columns shall be inserted at which column in the table

    do you mean , mapping output specification in mapping menu???
    if you were meaning this , actually i tried it but what i understood from the examples posted in wiki , i have to add java script step
    and also the example was about concatanening values and put it in output , not in spoecific location in output

    if you have an example like what i want please send me the link

    iam searching about how to do it , but actually i can't achieve result

    No, that mapping is to create sub-transformations.

    You have to use a Select Values Step. (Transform category of steps)
    Put it between the text file input and the table output, and use the Edit Mapping button to map the input and output.
