Error description

  • Are there any other possible solutions available outside of the
    flat
    file?  We have the descriptions in DataStage, perhaps that can
    be
    leveraged?  We are extracting data from our source system using
    DataStage jobs and putting the data into Oracle tables then
    importing
    that data into Information Analyzer.

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    When re-importing metadata via connectors, table descriptions
    are always updated, and column descriptions are never updated.
     Users should have a mechanism whereby they can control whether
    or not descriptions are updated upon reimport.
