I'm looking to create a job that combines schema fields into a positional string - so I want the reverse of tExtractPositionalFields but there doesn't seem to be a "write" positional fields component.
Using tMap or tXMLMap I could do this with a set of variables and brute force concatenation, but that seems very "programmatic" rather than within the spirit of Talend DI.
is tFileOutputPositional what are You looking for?
as alternative tMap with LPAD or RPAD also simple way
I update this topic cause I am trying to do exactly the same thing.
Is there a way to merge several columns in one positional string, so doing the reverse of tExtractPositional field, without using files ?
Did anyone ever find a way to do that ? I looked for all Talend positional components but couldn't find one that can answer this need.
Thanks in advance
