When I am importing a profile, is it possible to get a sample output or preview of real data from my connector? A preview of the table/values.

Someone is guaranteed to tell me this is a dumb question; but I need to figure it out.
If you are intimately familiar with your data sources, you don't necessarily need a sample of data to determine what fields to pull and how to map them. But that's not always the case. I don't have a way to test query some of the data I am working with, so it's like working in the dark at the moment.
I can imagine I could output a query to a flat file, but it looks like i would have to define the flat file profile for every case.

This is something other tools provide, like Informatica. It's part of their import process; so you can see you have the right table and plan what to do with the fields in process.
