Autofilling Functions

There is a set of functions you can use to fill records with some special, pre-defined values (e.g. name of the file you are reading, size of the data source etc.). These functions are available in Metadata editorDetails paneAdvanced properties

The following functions are supported by most Readers, except ParallelReader, QuickBaseRecordReader, and QuickBaseQueryReader. The function fills in the value into the metadata field just on the output port of the Reader. The other component that does not read the data source would not know the value to be filled in.

The ErrCode and ErrText functions can be used only in the following components: DBExecute and DBOutputTable.

Note a special case of true autofilling value in the MultiLevelReader component.
