Hi All,

I was doing HFM data load through FDM batch loader. One of the data files did not get processed and it stayed stuck in the Open batch folder. I loaded the concerned data file manually through Import - Validate - Export Steps in FDM and it Completed Successfully. I need help to know answers for below querries:

1. What may have stopped the file to load through batch loader, though other similar files get loaded successfully in same batch.?

2.  I can still see that file in Open batch which was stuck. So do i need to manually clear that file from open batch?

Please help me in seeking answer.

    Have you looked at the log activity for the hung process to see if there is any useful information there?

    Also, check the file name format.  Remember, FDM requires a very specific file naming convention.  The file name should in the following format: File ID

    1. Location
    2. Category
    3. Period
    4. Load Method

    Example file name - b~Texas~Actual~Jan-2004~RR.txt.

    Both the FDM Classic and FDMEE Admin Guides have solid directions on this.

    Good luck.
