How to merge columns in Import Format

Accepted answer
edited Feb 14, 2023 12:57PM in EPM Platform and Freeform 2 comments



I am doing a metadata build of the Employee dimension with source from an MSSQL table with multiple fields.

The query I defined in Data Exchange pulls 3 fields, Parent, ID, and Alias, where the Alias column is merged from 3 other fields within the sql table.

The records are being added, however, the challenge I'm facing is with regards to the Alias, where only the last name (LASTNAME) is added as the ALIAS. I'm trying to concatenate into Alias, the last name, first initials, the ID and the title, ie:

Doe, J (12345) - Manager

In the Import Format, I have defined 3 fields: Parent, ID, and Alias

Howdy, Stranger!
