Does powerCenter permit copying part of a mapping (mapping logic) into a different mapping that is in different repository ? 1.

yes 2.yes if both repositories are within the same repository domain. 3. yes, if object dependencies, such as sources and reusable transformations are copied to the destination folder first, and saved to the repository 4. yes, by exporting the mapping to xml and reimporting it in the new repository Under what circumstances can you edit the port of a target definition in the mapping designer? 1. Only after the mapping has been saved in the repository 2. Only if the target definition has been made reusable 3. Always 4. Never From which Designer tool can the preview Data dialog box be used to preview TARGET data? 1. Target Designer and mapplet Designer 2. target designer and mapping designer 3. mapplet designer and mapping designer 4. target designer,mapping designer and mapplet designer A transformation has the following ports Port_1 String, input port_2: String, input port port_3 String, output port. Endstring is a string literal which of the expression shown below would be valid for port_3? 1. port_1 || port_2 || ENDSTRING 2. port_1 || port_2 || ENDSTRING 3. port_1 || port_2 || ENDSTRING 4. concat (port_1,concat(port_2,ENDSTRING)) Which is generally the most efficient way to join two tables in the same database? 1. 2. 3. 4. In the database Using a Source Qualifier Transformation using a joiner transformation this cannot be done in power center 8.x

Which of the following is true about the sorter transformation? 1. The sorter transformation must be used immediately downstream of a source qualifier transformation 2. The sorter transformation must be used immediately downstream of a source qualifier transformation that reads from a relational source 3. The Sorter transformation supports multiple sort levels so any sort key can have a secondary sort associated with it 4. the user can modify the order by clause generated by the sorter transformations

what is the difference between the system variable $$$sessionstarttime and SESSSTARTTIME 1. $$$SessStartTime returns the session start time as an String and SESSSTARTTIME returns the session start time as date/time 2. $$$SessStartTime returns the session start time as a Integer and SESSSTARTTIME returns the session start time as an date/time 3. $$$SessStartTime returns the session start time as a string and SESSSTARTTIME returns the session start time as an integer 4. There is no difference in practice, either can be used to return the session start time Which statement is true of worklets but not of mapplets? 1. They are reusable by nature 2. They encapsulate part of the functionality of a workflow/Mapping 3. They have their Own design Tool 4. They can be nested

In a Workflow you need to run an operating system script between two sessions. How can you best accomplish this? 1. Embed the script into Custom task 2. call the script from a Command task 3. Use a Custom transformation 4. Use Event raise and Event Wait tasks You are optimizing a mapping, which of the following statements about expression is true? 1. String operations are faster than numeric operations 2. You should Char and Varchar fields before performingcomparisons 3. The CONCAT function is faster than the || operator 4. Using a variable is less efficient than using the equivalent code in several expressions A workflow should automatically run at the same time daily. Which Runoption should be selected? 1. Run on integration Service initialization 2. Run on demand 3. Run continuously 4. Make reusable

Data passes into and out of transformations through input and output 1. Fields 2. columns 3. ports 4. gates In which PowerCenter application do you create connections objects and administer repository folders? 1. Administration Console 2. Repository Manager 3. Workflow Manager 4. Designer What type of data Source(s) can the source qualifier transformation read from? 1. Relational databases 2. Relational Databases and flat files 3. Relational Databases, Flat files and Cobol Files. 4. Relational Databases, Flat files ,COBOL Files and certified ERP sources such as PeopleSoft and SAP/R3 You are working with the large mapping with many transformations in it, and it is not clear to you where the data in a target port came from originally. How can you most easily determine this? 1. Select the port in the target and use the data lineage feature 2. Select the port in the target and do select link path backward 3. Change the name of the target port and propagate it backwards 4. Move the port to the top of the target so you more easily trace the link path backwards The Designer includes Find in WorkSpace and FindNext search tools as part of the standard toolbar. What can they be used to find? 1. Column or port names in and transformations, source or target definition 2. Column or port names in and transformations, source or target definition and strings in any of the output windows 3. Column or port names in and transformations, source or target definition and strings in any of the output windows, expressions in any transformation 4. Column or port names in and transformations, source or target definition and strings in any of the output windows, expressions in any transformation and descriptive text What is one way to copy a source definition to a non-shared from a shared folder? Assume you have write access to the non shared folder 1. Verify that the source analyzer is active and the non-shared folder is open

2. Verify that the Source Analyzer is active and the non-shared folder is open and then press the ctrl key while dragging 3. Verify that the source Analyzer is active and shared folder is open 4. Verify that the source Analyzer is active and the shared folder is open and then press the ctrl key while dragging What is an ordered set of tasks, designed to accomplish an overall operational purpose called? 1. 2. 3. 4. Workflow A Session A Mapping A transformation

Which of the PowerCenter application is browser-based? 1. Repository manager 2. Workflow Monitor 3. Administration Console 4. Workflow manager What is the objective that runs (or executes) an instance of a mapping called? 1. a workflow 2. a wokflow instance 3. a mapping instance 4. a session Why might you not be able to generate a default query in the Source Qualifier SQL Editor? 1. The datatypes in the Source Qualifier do not match the corresponding datatypes in the source definitions for each column and port 2. The Source Qualifier transformation does not have one or more ports connected to another transformation or target in the mapping 3. The Source Qualifier transformation has ports connected to two or more transformations or targets in the mapping 4. The Integration Service is not running What types of transformation ports does power center Support 1. Input output variable 2. Input output input/output variable 3. Input output variable aggregate 4. Input output input/output variable aggregrate
