No fields selected in Data Cleasing


Hi guys,


I have a stupid question, if no field is selected under "Select Fields to Cleanse" but Replace with blanks and Replace with Zero and Leading and trailing whitespaces and modify case is selected, does that mean nothing will be changed? Thank you!

If you want nothing changed, I would not use a tool.  In order to change the contents of a field, you need to select at least one field to act on.


I hope that answer helps you.

Thank you so much for the reply. I inherited a workflow so I was not sure. Now I am clear.

Have a wonderful day!
