  2. Anchor – Confluence issue – the Anchor macro may take up a line / puts a blank line into the page as displayed by Confluence and Scroll Viewport. This appears to be a Confluence bug of some kind.

    • Workaround: Put the Anchor macro at the end of a previous paragraph.

Data Sources

Data sources are source systems (data sources) available to extract data.

zData Warehouse is the target/destination data warehouse. Read and write-back data to transform data already in the data warehouse. See also zData Warehouse (Reimports) in the Target Objects panel.

  • Used to created calculated fields, apply formulas, run SQL functions and make other data manipulations to the data warehouse.

How to Expand the Data Source in the Source Objects panel / Refresh

To show the names of the tables in zData Warehouse for example:

  1. Click zData Warehouse.

  2. Click Refresh (blue star)

  3. Click the expand button next to zData Warehouse.

Target Objects Panel

The center section of the Target Objects panel is a hierarchical menu consisting of target tables grouped by data source and target column names.

Configures the mapping of Source Objects to Target Objects. Allows data warehouse table maintenance and data load. Lists the tables and columns mapped to the data warehouse grouped by data source.







  1. Create Table. Select to create a new data warehouse table from scratch. Name it and then create SQL for it in the Extract SQL Statement panel.

  2. Delete Table. Select a table then select Delete Table to delete it, select Yes to confirm. (Ctrl + Del)

  3. Duplicate Table. Select a table, then select Duplicate Table to duplicate it. (Ctrl + 2)

  4. Rename Table: Select a table, then click Rename Table to rename it. (F2)

  5. Design: Select a table and click Design to design the columns format and extra data manipulation.
    More at: ETL+ Design Page

  6. Preview Table: Select a table, then lick Preview Table to preview data in the Preview page. (Ctrl + P)
    The Preview page display a sample of its records from the table’s data source (ETL+ executes the top records from the Extract SQL Statement to preview).

  7. Load Now: Select a table and click Load Now to load its source data into the data warehouse. (Ctrl + L)
    (The corresponding SQL and Load type options in the Extract SQL Statement panel determines how and what data is loaded.)

Target Objects

A target object is a list of data warehouse tables mapped to a data source in the Source Objects panel.

zData Warehouse (Reimports) is a pre-defined source linked to the data warehouse. This source lists tables from the data warehouse re-imported into the data warehouse (for data manipulations).


Target Tablesrepresent tables in the data warehouse.

Table Columns

Every table consists of one or more table columns.

Double-click a table or right-click it → Show Columns → +/- to expand/collapse its list of columns.

Types of Table Columns

  • PK (Primary Key) icon: Columns that are part of the table’s primary key.

  • Black column icon: The data warehouse column format is the same as from the source.

  • Green column Icon: The data warehouse column format has been edited in the Design page.

How to edit column data types and PK

Extract SQL Statement Panel

Edits the SQL code (SQL statements) that controls the mapping of the source data connections in the Source Objects panel to the data warehouse tables in Target Objects panel.

Each SQL statement corresponds to a source group and table from the Target Objects panel. The output of the SQL SELECT statement loads into the destination data warehouse displayed just below the page title. See Data Warehouse info.

Extract SQL Statement panel (Load All)

  1. Display of the names of the corresponding source group and table on the Target Objects panel.

  2. Extract SQL Statement. Editable text of SQL code/statement.

    • To view or edit SQL for a table: Select a table on the Target Objects panel. The corresponding SQL statement should appear in the Extract SQL Statement panel.

    • Use the SQL Statement syntax of the data source. Look at the SQL syntax for MS SQL Server sources in MS SQL Server, Providex syntax for for the Providex ODBC, etc.

  3. Load Type: Controls how the data load process for the selected table.
    More at ETL+ Table Load Types.

  4. Confirm. Click Confirm to accept the changes.
    To reject the changes click on another table and click No to the Confirm changes? prompt.

    • A asterisk indicates that the SQL has been edited.

  5. Parse.
