    Each attribute on the target when you are loading has a property (Update: Operation under Loading Properties for the attribute) which determines the operation performed, by default it is = (an assignment), but there are others there such as += (add), -= (subtract), *= (multiple), /= (divide), ||= (concatenate) for example plus a bunch of combinations. This lets you do all sorts, so you can define the update operation property to be += for attribute QTY_1 in your target table operator.
