I have a gas pipeline network which I have stored in an File Geodatabase as polylines. I've created an FME workspace to split the pipelines at fittings (valves, reducers, tees, etc) which are stored as point features. This effectively creates smaller line segments when a fitting overlaps a pipe.
My question is: can I have FME remove my original pipes and replace them with my split lines? Or do I have to write to another geodatabase and then cut/paste back into the original file? Please note, I am using a tester to query out only a certain area, so I don't want to replace all of the pipes, just the area I'm working on.
I'm relatively new to FME and appreciate any input.
