Using mapped CSV file with lookups

Postby NeoEvaX » Fri Feb 14, 2014 5:26 pm

I have a table (Violations) that I am loading from a csv file. One of the columns is a key to another table (Violation Types).

There are only 3 different Violation Types in that table.

My CSV file includes which Violation Type a given Violation (row) should be. The SQL Data Generator wont let me switch that column away from Foreign Key Generator.

Is there anyway to have a bit more control in those Foreign Keys? Any way to load a number (1-3) to load give a value for the Foreign key.

I was hoping to avoid having to write a script to run afterwards to set those values.

SQL Data Generator has the ability to run a Python script, so if you have a Python script, variable declarations typically begin with the dollar-sign ($). The question must be, how to get a generated column value and use that in a SQL query. This sounds like you would need a combination of two generators - cross-column and SQL statement.
