2.13. Corresponding datastage data types to ORACLE types?
Most of the datastage variable types map very well to oracle types. The biggest problem is to map correctly oracle NUMBER(x,y) format.
The best way to do that in Datastage is to convert oracle NUMBER format to Datastage Decimal type and to fill in Length and Scale column accordingly.
There are no problems with string mappings: oracle Varchar2 maps to datastage Varchar, and oracle char to datastage char.
