    Informatica session log: Writer Initialization failed. Writer terminating

    967454
      Hi All

      I created a simple mapping in Informatica which aggregates records.

      Source : Oracle table EMPLOYEE_DETAILS (imported from oracle db)
      Target : Flat file TARGET_A.csv (manually created the target definition from Designer)

      When I run the workflow having session of this mapping it get failed

      Session log has 1 error: Writer Initialization failed. Writer terminating

      Target file "TARGET_A.csv" should be created in directory: $PMTargetFileDir\ with data in it

      Do we need to define connection for target flat file in workflow manager? if so, how?
      Because Informatica server is installed on same machine

      Thanks
      Prashant
