Step 3. Under the Select data tab,note the fields we selected in Screen. We can use the selection condition on 0CALDAY to load 1999 data first,2000 data second,and 2001 data last. If we do not enter anything,all of the data will be loaded together in one data load request. Because we do not have a large volume of data,we load them all together.
