Columns Tab question

Columns Tab question

Columns Tab question

I searched, but couldn't find a thread about this --

On my ODBC input connection, on the COLUMNS tab --
Does it make a difference if the columns are in the correct order ?
We had a change to the output table, and the new field happens to NOT be the last field on the table.
When I am adding it to my COLUMNS, it automatically adds the new field to the bottom.

ow do I reposition the columns on the column tab? I have tried various combinations of holding down right or left click buttons, then scrolling -- it just highlights several additional columns -- I can't see where it is "picking up" the one I want to move to drop it as the 3rd column in the list.


RE: Columns Tab question

You can (and should) insert columns in their proper order. Highlight (with your mouse) the column and press the Insert key to insert a new column.
