Step 5 - Selecting tables for data extraction
At this step you should select the tables from which data are to be extracted.
In the Available data tables tree you can see the tables belonging to the databases specified at the Selecting objects for metadata extraction step. Initially the tables are grouped by DB names and schemas. You can change grouping by dragging column headers to the grey group boxes above the grids or ungroup them by dragging to the grid headers. Additionally, you can use the Custom Filter dialog allowing you to set conditions for filtering data tables in the trees.
To select tables, move the items from the Available data tables tree to the Selected data tables tree. To cancel table selection, just remove it from the Selected data tables tree. Use the buttons or drag-and-drop operations to move the tables from one list to another.
Hint: To select multiple tables, hold down the Shift or Ctrl key while selecting the table names.
The context menus of the Available data tables and the Selected data tables areas allow you to browse the tables in the tree more effectively: you can expand/collapse the tables viewed in the tree or specify filter conditions within the Filter Builder dialog.
The Filter Builder dialog allows you to facilitate creating and applying filter criteria for the tables viewed in the trees. It is also possible to save filter criteria to an external *.flt file and load them from that file any time afterwards by using the Save as... and the Open... buttons.
When you are done, press the Next button to proceed to the next step of the wizard.
