Mapping an element from only the first source child node to target header element


I need some direction on how to properly implement this mapping.

I have a mapping source with header node and several children nodes and a target with a similar layout. I need to populate an element in the target header with the a value from an element in only the first source child.

In this case each line item in the source may be populated with a different business unit and I need to map the business unit from only the first line item from the source to the business unit in the target header.

    you try this mapping

    source element ---->removecontext (set context to point to source xml header node)--->copyvalue[0]------>target element

    Copy value standard function works in your case, try below mapping .


    child note segment---->useoneAsMany---->Splitbyvalue(eachvalue)------>Traget field

    child note segment----->

    If you have any difficulties paste your source structure.
