Usage Notes

The DatabaseDeleter uses FME Writers to perform deletes on tables. Each DatabaseDeleter may have its own database connection, potentially not shared with other writers and transformers. If it is necessary to share a single connection or to change options on the writer that are not available in the DatabaseDeleter, use a writer directly instead.

See FME Readers and Writers (formats supported by FME 2014) > Database Writer Mode or specific writer documentation for more information on how writers will respond to deleting rows.

Unlike FME Writers, fme_db_operation and fme_where attributes are not supported on DatabaseDeleter input features.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
