Configuration File Path

This field is used to specify a specific .config file that tells the extractor what to extract from the source schema/database - it is only used if the default values need to be overwritten.

CAST recommends leaving this parameter as defined.

Extraction File Path
This command specifies the location you would like the extractor to output the Extraction action results to.

By default:

  • the field will be pre-populated with %HOMEPATH%\exportResults - this means that the results of the extraction process will be stored in the %HOMEPATH% folder (this resolves to the current user's home directory).
  • the results are outputted in archive raw format in the selected folder - you can override this in the Expert panel by de- activating the Zip Packaging option.
  • the resulting archive file will be named exportResults.castextraction
  •  

If you want to store the results of the extraction process in a different place, enter a location manually or use the Browse button to locate a folder. Please make sure that you omit any file extension. The screen shot below will result in an archive format file called exportResults.castextraction raw output files stored in located in the D:\Squirrel\results\exportResults folder:
