Hopefully someone can help with this.
After a change we made yesterday to allow users to Merge data when exporting from FDM (previously this was restricted to replace only) the value dimension component of the FDM data export file is now showing as [None], in files prior to the change it was <Entity Currency>.
All of the literature I have managed to find refers to the value dimension default datavalue as being left at default, but does anybody know where this default setting is within FDM.
I'm completely stumped, I have checked all of our settings against our TESTFDM (which had the same change made but still works) and both FDM apps appear to be setup the same, is there an export script or something which determines the default value dimension for the data export file.
Any suggestions or pointers will be gratefully received.
which target application is the export file for?
If HFM, the default is derived from the data Value setting on the location. If this is default value when the location was created, it would automatically default to <Entity Currency>
Thanks for responding so quickly,
The target application is our main HFM application
And we don't have data value settings on our locations as prior to this issue appearing they have always defaulted to <Entity Currency> in the export file anyway. So there has been no need.
I did try adding one of these to a location but it didn't have an effect on the export file, although to be fair I didn't do a full reimport and validate of the data before exporting, I'll try that.
Also we did have to repoint FDM to our HFM app after we made the changes, I'm wondering if I've somehow broken the link between FDM and HFM in some way
when the location does not have an entry for the Data Value, it picks the default up from the dimension listing on the adaptor. Have a look at the properties for the DataValue in the dimension list on the adaptor in workbench, in case that has been amended somehow to [None].
