The data mapping editor has four columns: root target, Data definitions, a column that shows the mapping connections, and a column for the destination data type.
The root target column shows the source complex data type. Complex data types can have nested complex data types. If your complex data type has a nested complex data type, that data type appears under the primary data type in the column. You can change which data type appears in this column by changing the complex data type with which this data mapping editor works.
The data definitions column shows the properties in the source complex data type. The individual properties that you see in this column are the source properties that you should map into the destination properties. You can expand a complex data type to see its properties.
The column that is between the source data type and the destination data type columns shows the mapping connections. After you make mapping connections, you can right-click on connections and take actions on them.
The column on the right shows the properties of the destination complex data type. The individual properties that you see in this column are the destination properties into which you should map data.
When you map one property into another property, a blue line appears. This line represents the relationship between the two properties. You can right-click on this line for options. If you see a red line, the mapping definition is invalid. You can only map two variables that are of the same "simple" data type (except for convertible types).
