table doesn't exist in target Database: pegarules



BIX extract fails with an error message.

Error Messages

NAME1_NAME2: table doesn't exist in target Database: pegarules

Steps to Reproduce

When creating an Extract rule:


Output format of Database Schema
Output database name of PegaRULES

For a specific propery, specify:

To Table as schema.tablename.

Root Cause

At runtime, a dot in the To Table specification is converted to an underscore since the dot is not a valid character for table names.
The table schema_tablename is not defined in the PegaRULES schema.


The Output database name.was changed to the desired output schema, the schema name was removed from the To Table specification and the extract ran successfully.
