Separating alphanumeric from numeric in BODS

Dear community,

I need to separate the house number from the STREET field and write it to the HOUSE_NUM_1 field, as seen in the attached print-screen. streethousenumber.jpg

Which method would you recommend for this?

I need to do this for suppliers and clients in order to create business partners in HANA. For migration we are using staging tables.

Thank you,

    You use the Address Cleanse Transform for that, assuming it is licensed.

    You provide the input and the transforms knows all the various formatting options of addresses and provides the parsed address via tons of output fields. One with the long street "Mühlenweg 17-37", one with the street name "Mühlenweg" alone, one with the house number only "17-37" etc.

    Takes a bit to find the proper input/output combinations to get the desired result but once you got passed that, it works very well.
