Handling the “ORDER BY” clause in an interface

Hello Everyone…

We always get a lot of emails asking about how to “Order By” in ODI because of that, here there is a simple way to do it…

Stays as a suggestion to Oracle implement as default feature in forward versions!

A simple example how to handle Order By in ODI.

Solution 1

Step 1.  Create an Option

Step 2. Add the code into KM

<% if (odiRef.getOption("ORDER_BY").equals("1")) { %>
ORDER BY
<%=odiRef.getColList("", "[COL_NAME]", ",nt", "", "(UD1)")%>
<%=odiRef.getColList(",", "[COL_NAME]", ",nt", "", "(UD2)")%>
<%=odiRef.getColList(",", "[COL_NAME]", ",nt", "", "(UD3)")%>
<%=odiRef.getColList(",", "[COL_NAME]", ",nt", "", "(UD4)")%>
<%=odiRef.getColList(",", "[COL_NAME]", ",nt", "", "(UD5)")%>
<%=odiRef.getColList(",", "[COL_NAME]", ",nt", "", "(UD6)")%>
<%=odiRef.getColList("", "[COL_NAME]", ",nt", "", "(UD7)")%>
<%=odiRef.getColList("", "[COL_NAME]", ",nt", "", "(UD8)")%>
<%=odiRef.getColList("", "[COL_NAME]", ",nt", "", "(UD9)")%>
<%=odiRef.getColList("", "[COL_NAME]", ",nt", "", "(UD10)")%>
<%} %>

This way you can have the KM to handle with and without Order By option .
