Loop through database tables

Loop through database tables

RM has a "loop data sets" component.

My data sets are saved in a database. Is there is a way to loop through all database tables?

Re: Loop through database tables

hi,

 

not with one operator. You can write a SQL statement generating you table of table names and use a Loop Values on it to get each table name as a macro. You can then use this table in the loop.

Yes, you can use the Loop Repository operator and instead of pointing at your local repository point at the //DB/ where your stored connections are. 

Below is a quick example.

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><process version="7.4.000">
  <context>
    <input/>
    <output/>
    <macros/>
  </context>
  <operator activated="true" class="process" compatibility="7.4.000" expanded="true" name="Process">
    <process expanded="true">
      <operator activated="true" class="loop_repository" compatibility="7.4.000" expanded="true" height="82" name="Loop Repository" width="90" x="179" y="136">
        <parameter key="repository_folder" value="//DB/DemoDataStore/Example Sets/"/>
        <parameter key="entry_type" value="IOObject"/>
        <process expanded="true">
          <connect from_port="repository object" to_port="out 1"/>
          <portSpacing port="source_repository object" spacing="0"/>
          <portSpacing port="source_in 1" spacing="0"/>
          <portSpacing port="sink_out 1" spacing="0"/>
          <portSpacing port="sink_out 2" spacing="0"/>
        </process>
      </operator>
      <connect from_op="Loop Repository" from_port="out 1" to_port="result 1"/>
      <portSpacing port="source_input 1" spacing="0"/>
      <portSpacing port="sink_result 1" spacing="0"/>
      <portSpacing port="sink_result 2" spacing="0"/>
    </process>
  </operator>
</process>
