    Hello 3047423,

    The lines you have highlighted from your logs are quite common to be produced.  The last line "ERROR_INVALID_PERIOD.............. Invalid period specified in the file." is a key/description line.  It isn't an actual error.

    The good thing is your process did produce 16347 rows; but as noted they were all rejected. 

    My suggestion would be to change the log level to 5 (DEBUG) and rerun the process.  This will produce detailed logging and even log out the reason why the rows were rejected.  You can then most likely tackle the reason from there.  If you need help please post the details of the reason the rows were rejected.

    Please make sure to MASK/HIDE any private information!  The reason for the rows kicking out is going to be JUST BELOW the processing codes you pasted above.

    Thank you,
