Hi all,

I have a list of dataflows which have just completed the development phase.

Most of the dataflows look quite complicated, in the sense lots of overlapping lines passing all around the dataflow, is there any option to neatly realign all the objects within a dataflow?

I dont want to manually drag and drop and reorder each object within a dataflow, wanted to know if there any easy way to accomplish the same?

Regards,

Swetha

Hi Swetha,

Use embedded dataflow feature or break the dataflow in multiple dataflows to avoid confusion for other developers in the future.

Unfortunately no way to order all objects but as a good practice try to keep the data flows as simple as possible by braking them into small chunks

Hi all,

What i am expecting is --- if there is any option to achieve the required output like in the example i have provided in the snapshot below.

initial dataflow:

after rearranging objects within dataflow for better readability :

[i manually did drag and re-arrange every object, i want to know if any automatic option to reorder clearly like below ?]

Hi Swetha,

There is no automatic option as such, we have to do manually.

Try this... in TOOLS----> options ------>expand Designer -------> Graphics-------> select Line type (Straight, Curver or Horizontal/vertical) and see if any of this option make your flow clear.

Thanks Ravi for your answer,

but still the dataflow looks messy , i guess the reorder should be done manually, seems like no automatic option.

Hi Swetha,

Yes, no automatic option.

Also please review your dataflow and see if you can make it better? i see you are using many Query transforms in your dataflow, better tune your flow wherever it is possible.
