We would like to do the following;
1. Import a flat file into FDM
2. Validate based on the Mapping File we have loaded into FDM
3. Export the data to a Flat file
Step#1 We are good
Step#2 Is the validation done against the Mapping file in FDM or does it require a Target Application to validate?
Step#3 We know data can be exported to HFM, Essbase, etc. and a .dat file is created in the Outbox. We want to just create a Flat File and "DONOT" want to load to any Target Application. Is this possible?
Appreciate your responses.
After more research looks like there is an adaptor to extract data into flat files from FDM. Its called; Financial Data Quality Management Tax Extract adapter.
My understanding is this adaptor comes with standard FDM. Could someone please confirm if this adaptor needs to be purchased separately?
As Obi Wan Kenobi once said 'that is not the adapter you are looking for ...' or something similar anyway :-) As the previous poster stated what you require is the Data Mart adapter which will be called the PULL adapter on e-delivery. It ships as part of the FDM adapter suite so no seperate purchase is necessary.

Ok, I found the read-me after I figured the name of the adaptor. Heres the link;
How does the validation process take place? Any info, docs on this adaptor would really help...
