Create schema from flat file

Create schema from flat file

Hi

I have a flat file with more than 300 columns. I don't want to manually type all the columns in the schema. But the schema itself is in a positional file, so from this, Is there a way to create schema's from a flat file containing the layout?

You can create metadata from a flat file and then use the metadata while creation of job

Re: Create schema from flat file

My file doesn't have any headers, the whole metadata information is in a separate positional file, that's why i'm looking for a solution to "create a schema from a file". I came across this link, but it seems like i need to change the schema file layout,
