The "Destination Page Size" is not tuned up with the amount of records inserted into the output file.


If you go to "Options" tab when editing the Integration Center job, you'll be able to see an option called "Destination Page Size":

This option will delimit the number of records that will be written in the output file. If your integration is writing a number of records greater than the Destination Page Size, than more than one output file is generated to supply the amount of records. For example: your Destination Page Size is set as 10, but your integration is returning 15 records. The result: 2 output files are created, one with 10 records and another with 5.

You can increase the Destination Page Size value by following the steps of the KBA below:

Note: the max number of Destination Page Size is 2500, according to the Integration Center Guide.
