FDM 1 source with 2 target and 2 amount

Hi all,

I would like to have my csv to be targeted into 2 amount(the source file is one), please see my screencapture below, the red text combination(ACCOUNT and UD1) is trigger point for the duplication.

e.g: if account =710xxxxxx and UD1 =710xxxxxx Then

                   Take the Amount from column 10 mapped it to amount column and take the Currency Code from column 9 and map it as cEUR

       end if


This is my import format:


I have seen that this has been in so many topics before,

Intragroups or how to load 2 data field into one amount field  and Importing multiple amount columns from a single text file

But not sure if I can apply it correctly so I took the existing working VBscript that already exists in my current FDM and try to modify it as below, but it keeps giving grey fish,  so my question:

1. can anyone help what is missing from my script???

2. I am open to any simpler way to achieve this, I tried with Logic group before---but can logic group take an amount scripting split? I cannot find any "amount" dimension in Complex Logic Group.

Function AmountTC(strField, strRecord)

    I am not sure about the requirement, if 2 different users is going to run the data load rule using the CSV. Then its worth while to create 2 different locations (with respective import fromat,mapping & data load rule).

    In the mapping you manage how the data needs to be loaded.

    Note: Again you are the best to decide to go with fixing your Script or creating 2 different locations.

    Hi Dayalan,

    Technically, I understand what you mean.

    But accounting process wise, that does not make sense, because based on accounting process, they would like to have the transaction currency to be uploaded at the same time with the functional currency.

    If there is two import format, there are possibilities where user are actually loading transactional currency, change the source data , and loading functional currency afterwards. Hence, the data will be incorrect. So best is to have scripts.
