Specifies a table and columns to pre-link the new table to.

Syntax

-, [TABLE.TO.LINK.TO]:[LOCAL,COLS]:[FOREIGN,COLS][:DENORM,COLS]
--link=[TABLE.TO.LINK.TO]:[LOCAL,COLS]:[FOREIGN,COLS][:DENORM,COLS]

Description

--link prelinks the new table to an existing table. After loading the table, prelink it to [TABLE.TO.LINK.TO], linking the list of local columns [LOCAL,COLS] to the list of foreign columns [FOREIGN,COLS]. If the optional list of foreign columns [DENORM,COLS] is included, then instead of prelinking to [TABLE.TO.LINK.TO], the columns [DENORM,COLS] are denormalized from [TABLE.TO.LINK.TO] into the new table.
