Data Formats Attributes & Modeling in Data Stage

 Data Formats

  • Data formats are also of different and are need to converted as of our required data
  • r/m/d
  • d/m/y
  • m/d/y
  • PQ 0102

That is   010102

2nd  jan 2001

Where              P =0  Q =1  R = 2  S =  3

  • Transformations may take place in different ways from Source to target.

- - > We may load the Source attribute ENO as it is to the Target  Attribute , or may make Same   attribute.


The data-* attributes is used to store custom data private to the page or application.

The data-* attributes gives us the ability to embed custom data attributes on all HTML elements.

The stored (custom) data can then be used in the page's JavaScript to create a more engaging user experience (without any Ajax calls or server-side database queries).

The data-* attributes consist of two parts:

-The attribute name should not contain any uppercase letters, and must be at least one character long after the prefix "data-"

-The attribute value can be any string

Note: Custom attributes prefixed with "data-" will be completely ignored by the user agent.

Ex: We have ENO as N 1234, N 3567

-The transformation we need to make is change All Ns to the value 8.

-Now, ENO Will be 81234,83563

-Both the source entities may have on Referential Integrity i.e they are related With each other to make same transformations.

-The main 4 jobs involved in doing an project are :






- - > Both the Source Entities , are related with each other through joins, known as

Horizontal Combining in data Warehousing.

Dimensional modeling / ER Modeling:

- - > Modeling will never happen at data base i.e  Oracle


 - - >  Source system when modeled will always have only E- R Model

 - - > Target system when modeled may have either E- R / Dimensional model

-Logical representation of Source system or Target system w. r. t client requirements

-r .t customer perspective

-Logical representation is nothing but pictorial representation.

-Modeling popular Modeling Tools Modeling Tools.

-Most popular Modeling Tools are



Based on Business Requirements Document (BRB), Modeling Will be done by Data Modeler  /DBA/Team leader (TL)/ Project loader (PL)

- - >To create it in a database,

  • using the same Modeling Tools, We can also Create physical Model(A code/ query)
  • Once the Queries are created , click on RUN,  data will be created to data base.

Making some attributes to the already existing Model

why do we called Target system as a Dimension Model ?

  • A client can see the information in different dimensions.
  • Will always maintain lowest level of information i.e Detailed
  • Will have Meaningful, descriptive , detailed info.

(Ex: Suppose we want exp of emp as target info, Target system will products

Emp  of Emp in different ways , that is in years, months, days, Hours, Seconds, nano Seconds )
