HOW TO: Convert a reusable PowerCenter repository object into a non-reusable object
Problem Description
Objects (transformations, tasks, etc.) which are not defined as reusable when created cannot be made non-reusable by renaming them.
Is there a way to "demote" a reusable object to a non-reusable object?
Cause
Solution

To convert a reusable object to a non-reusable object follow these steps:

  1. Select the reusable object in the Repository Navigator.

  2. Drag the object into the mapping or workflow.

    Note
    DO NOT LET GO OF THE MOUSE BEFORE COMPLETING THE NEXT STEP.

  3. Hold down the control key.
    There will be a plus sign ("+") in a white box if the technique is correct.

  4. While continuing to hold down the control key, let go of the mouse.

  5. Release the control key.

More Information
This procedure creates a copy of the object in the mapping or workflow.
The original reusable object remains intact in the repository.
