File Layout: Previewing Input Data

Some useful information related to previewing data in File Layouts.

1. Preview file data is available only for FIXED and CSV file layouts.
2. With an XML file, you cannot preview the data

The preview data appears only if you selected an import file, if the file format matches the format specified for the file layout definition, and if it contains a file record ID that matches the file record ID of the selected segment.

Override Search Record

Why do you override a search record? What are the scenarios you come across to implement this option?

Ususally, component search records will do. They help us in getting the required data onto the search page.
Below are few such cases, where you would be using 'Override Search Record' option.

1. May be you come across a scenario where when you access component should have one
    search  record and when you access component through Component Interface another
    search record.

2. Also another case is, if you want to register the same component  to be available at two
    different places in PIA.
