TDAUnionSourceTable

Overview

The TDAUnionSourceTable class links a particular table as part of a TDAUnionDataTable.

The TDAUnionSourceTable is just a reference to the existing regular DataTable registered in the schema; it provides an additional mappings collection that defines relations between UnionTable fields and SourceTable fields.

You can add/remove source tables to/from the union table on the Tables page in Schema Modeler.

Note: You can select only tables that are already registered, exist in the schema and have proper mapping to the database table which they represent as union source tables.
