    Minimum How many dimension required for FDM integration Script

      Hi Gurus

      I have only 2 dimensions in my SQL Table name dbo.ABC (Example: 1.Entity 2.Account and amount(data value)

      USA, SALES, 50000

      (Including value its total 3 dimensions)

      How to export this data to Target HFM Application.

      Integration Script got success when i click on validation it is shows only 2 dimension 1.Account 2.Entity. i have mapped correctly. but validation screen not showing anything. i got gold fish for validation button and Export is also showing success and got goldfish. but no data is exported to HFM application.
      in FDM outbox its created a file which is containing only *!data* text. There is no record in this file.

      I want to load the data with rest of the dimensions with [None] member combination as i don't have the additional dimensions in my source file.

      Minimum how many dimension required to export the data from FDM to HFM?

        • 1. Re: Minimum How many dimension required for FDM integration Script
          Can you post your integration script? Can you see any data imported at the import stage?
          • 2. Re: Minimum How many dimension required for FDM integration Script

            I came to know, at least one member from the source file should be there in the integration script then only we can assign at least [None] member or any member for the target dimensions.

            My source file having only 3 dimensions ( USA,Sales,Amount)

            Import Screen Dimensions:
            3.Account Description

            In the integration script its taking the values as

            Account Description

            above it shows only 0,1,2 numbers are assigned to source dimensions.

            As my source file having only 3 Dimension so it is taking only 3 dimensions shown below. rest of the dimensions it is not showing in the import screen.


            If i assign any values(3-9) to next dimensions or if I left blank rs.fields("txtAcctDes") with its showing below error messages:

            Error: An error occurred importing the file.
            Detail: Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal.
            At line: (39 and 42-46)

            So i have assigned Source-FDM-Account Number<font color="Blue">(rs.fields(1) </font>Value to rest of the dimensions in my integration script.
            <font color="Blue">rsAppend.Fields("Account") = rs.fields(1).Value</font>

            rsAppend.Fields("Desc1") = rs.fields(1).Value
            rsAppend.Fields("ICP") = rs.fields(1).Value
            rsAppend.Fields("UD1") = rs.fields(1).Value
            rsAppend.Fields("UD2") = rs.fields(1).Value
            rsAppend.Fields("UD3") = rs.fields(1).Value
            rsAppend.Fields("UD4") = rs.fields(1).Value

            Now am able to import the data into import screen, And i found all the above member names as Sales as i assigned Account dimension number(1) to these members temporarily to succeed the import process . Then i have mapped to Target dimensions with [None] member combination as these members are not in original source file. Then rest of the process Export and Check is done perfectly.

            *<font color="red">1.Am i right?? Please suggest me the correct process?</font>*

            *<font color="red">2.Can we use blank values in Integration Script as mentioned below??</font>*

            rsAppend.Fields("Desc1") = rs.fields("txtAcctDes").Value
            rsAppend.Fields("Account") = rs.fields("txtAcct").Value
            rsAppend.Fields("Entity") = rs.fields("txtCenter").Value

            *1.Added value*
            Example: rsAppend.Fields("Desc1") = rs.fields("1").Value
            *2.Blank Value*
            rsAppend.Fields("Desc1") = rs.fields("txtAcctDes").Value

            *<font color="red">3.As per my observation system is not accepting blank values in integration script. Please correct me??</font>*

            • 3. Re: Minimum How many dimension required for FDM integration Script
              You can assign blank values in your integration script e.g. rsAppend.Fields("Desc1") = "" will assign an empty string to the description. Personally I wouldn't assign an empty string to any of the active mappable dimensions as you would only be able to catch these with a wildcard map and they wouldn't be that informative. If you know they are goiung to be None then pass the string None to them and map that value e.g.
              rsAppend.Fields("ICP") = "ICP None"
              rsAppend.Fields("UD1") = "None"

              The reason your script has been failing is because the recodset you are using to assign the values from only has 3 fields. Therfore if you refence an oridinal in the range 3-9 it won't exsit
              i.e. rsAppend.Fields("ICP") = rs.fields(3).Value will generate the error message you get, as will rsAppend.Fields("Desc1") = rs.fields("txtAcctDes").Value because there is no field in the recordset named txtAcctDes

                Thanks for your clear explanation.
