BizTalk Mapper Grid

Use the grid within BizTalk Mapper to define how records and fields in your source schema map to records and fields in your destination schema.

If you drag a record or field in the source or destination schema directly to a record or field in the other schema, the link connecting these fields will be routed through the BizTalk Mapper grid.

If a particular mapping requires the use of one or more functoids, first drag and drop the appropriate functoid(s) from the appropriate functoid category tab in the Microsoft Visual Studio toolbox to the BizTalk Mapper grid. Then create the links between the functoid(s) and the appropriate records or fields in the source and destination schema by dragging the functoid, record, or field to the functoid, record, or field with which you want it to be linked. Links can be created in either direction.
