Answer / krishna

I checked result.

Case 1: when you use filter condition sal=true

nothing will be moved to target table. session succeeded
but no data in target table.

Case 2: when you use only TRUE as filter condition.

all 10 records from source passes through filter to target
table .(in target table also we will get 10 records)

Answer / pushpa

by default filter condition has the TRUE that means don't
worry whether the incoming data numeric or string.all incoming
data passed to the next transformation or target.
if we assign a condition manually sal=True.session is executed
successfully but even single record is not loaded into the
target.

Answer / arvind s

Sorry guys, Answer 3 is completely wrong.

TRUE is not identified as a string by informatica, its
represented as a bit, just like a high or low, (1 or 0)
almost equivalent to a boolean.

So we can equate sal=TRUE but sal='TRUE' will result in
invalid mapping as said in answer3.

Thanks,

Answer / pradeepa

Hi,

If the comparing column is a varchar and if this true is
given in single quotes it will validate ,but here salary
for sure it must be a number and when we say salary=true it
will trow error,that expression wont be validated..

obviously mapping will get invalidated..so we cant evn run
the ,mapping.
