Convert Data Types and Rename Columns

Convert Data Types and Rename Columns

The Datavault Builder is automating every aspect of  your Data Warehouse. For this purpose it lets you automate standard loading tasks.

  • Rename Columns while creating satellites or Business Objects – always original and changed name are stored for data lineage
  • Change data types while loading satellites – always the original and converted data type is stored to prevent data loss

By using try convert functions your loads will not break if a data conversion fails. As the unmodified data is stored with your converted data failed conversion no data is every lost.

Rename columns in the Data Vault load or in the Dimensional Model

Convert data types without risk of breaking your loads

Data Loss is prevented by storing also the unmodified data
