Creating a Process
You can create a process file using the new Process wizard or without the process wizard.
Note:  If you have edited DataIntegrator v9 process files in DataConnect v11 or later version, you will not be able to load it in DataIntegrator v9 again.
Creating a Process Using Process Wizard
Using the new process wizard, you can create a process that contains Start step, Transformation step, and a Stop step linked together. Within the wizard, you can transform source data into a new or existing target file or table. You can also join two source into a new or existing target. If macros are used, the macro sets will be added to the Configuration tab in the new process.
Note:  The new Process wizard currently supports a Transformation step only. In future releases, additional step types will be added.
To create a process using the Process wizard:
1. Select a DataConnect project and do any of the following:
Go to File > New > Process.
Click the arrow in /download/attachments/24975419/ProjectExplorer_New_Icon.png?version=1&modificationDate=1487964007993&api=v2 and then click Process.
Right-click on the project and then click New > Process.
The New Process Wizard is displayed.
2. Select the project in which you want to create the process.
3. In the Process File Name field, type a name for the process and click Next.
The Process Type page is displayed.
4. In Creation Method, select Use Wizard to design the process using the wizard.
By default, the Wizard type is Transformation Step Wizard.
5. In Map Type, select one of the following:
New Map: In Map Name, specify a name for the new map. The default name is Transformation_1.
Existing Map: In Select Map, click Browse and specify the map that you want to use for the transformation step.
6. Click Next.
If you have selected New Map, then the Define Sources page is displayed. The screens from here onwards is same as the Map wizard, where you can define the source, define an optional join and the target, specify the target schema, map the fields from source to target, and set the transformation started event options. For the details about the map wizard, see Creating a Map Using New Map Wizard.
If you have selected Existing Map, then the Process Wizard Summary page is displayed.

The process file opens in a Process Editor view (tab) and displays the Start step, Transformation step, and the Stop steps.
