Hello All, 


I have got struck on an interesting problem , hope someone can give me a helping hand. 


My Input Source Data Positioned Flat File looks below : 


It is sample ticketing file with multiple tickets in it ,TYPE0  row represents the starting of a new ticket,until the next TYPE0 encounters all details are of that ticket.

Each TYPE (TYPE0, TYPE0GRADES, TYPE2) are having different data positioned layout, so separate data positioned flat file profile is required to read those values.

At the end my aim to read one-by-one ticket (including its different Type details) which are set as different data positioned layout in different rows and combines and maps into a single row (& multiple columns) of a table.So that I will have one row representing one ticket with all of its details in multiple columns in my target database table.

Hope it clarifies the requirement. Thanks for your help in advance..!!


You can consider the ticket number as the orange colored value , which will be unique & not null (Primary Key)
