DML Maps

A DML Map (see Maps) uses DML expressions to transform and map one or more input Business Documents to an output Business Document.

Create DML Maps

To create a DML Map in an existing DML Mapping Project:

  1. From the main menu, select File > New > Map.
  2. Alternatively, you can right-click in the Project Explorer and select New > Map.
  3. A wizard appears to help you create a new Map.
  4. Specify where you want to save the Map. To select a path either use the directory tree or enter the path directly.
  5. Enter a File name for your Map. Click Next.
  6. For Map Type, choose DML.
  7. You can use either the Simple Configuration or Advanced Configuration tab.
  8. If you want to use more than one input Business Document, you must select Advanced Configuration.
  9. In the Advanced Configuration tab click Add icon to add more input Business Documents.
  10. Click Browse to select the path to the input Business Document(s).
  11. Click Browse to select the path to the output Business Document.
  12. Click Finish.

Mapping Services creates the Map in the selected project’s Map folder and an entry in the Project Explorer pane tree structure.

The Map opens on a new tab in the editor. On this tab, in the Filter (out) section, in the Expression column, you can enter DML expressions.
