HOW TO: Parameterize the lookup cache file name for a PowerCenter session

The lookup cache file name can be parameterized using the following syntax:

$Paramname = <lookupCacheFileName>

The parameter name should be prefixed with $Param followed by a user defined name.


The following would be specified in the parameter file:

$ParamLookupCacheFileName = CustomerLookup

In this case the value entered in the Cache File Name Prefix Lookup property would be $ParamLookupCacheFileName.

More Information
The default value for the Lookup Cache Directory Name is $PMCacheDir.
This is a server parameter configured in the Integration Service properties and is not specified in a parameter file.
