The loading process is completed in a series of steps that are presented in a wizard.
The first part of the process requires you to navigate to the cross-reference database, the source workspace, the target workspace, and an output location for the log file created.
You can choose to perform all the dataset mappings located in the cross-reference database or only a subset.
