Details dialog in Data manager

You can now view the operations and transformations performed on tables and fields using the Details dialog. Details displays the current operations and transformations made to the selected table or field, in the order they are applied in the generated data load script. This enables you to easily see the source of a table or field, the current changes that have been made, and the sequence in which the changes have been applied.
