I'm creating an import format for a location to load a csv file.
In that I need to skip an entity(actually 20+ entities) related data while importing.
But "SKIP" is not working here.
FIELD NAME FIELD NUMBER NUMBER OF FIELDS EXPRESSION
Skip 3 4 2219
Above combination is not working while import. All record with 2219 got loaded and failing at validation.
Is "SKIP" mentioned for the same purpose?
Is there any possiblity to skip a particular combination member as well using SKIP? (EX:- abcdxx1234, ijklxx5678 - member contains xx should be skipped)
Target is Planning Application, Adapter ES 11x-G4-H
Facing one more issue.
This is first time i'm using essbase adapter.
When I try to import map, import completed successful from excel. But no map got updated.
Map not getting updated even with a single member.
Thanks in advance.
Those entities should be skipped as long as the value 2219 is found in Field3 so it must not be matching 2219 against any values in that field. Are you sure there are no whitespace characters in the source field? Another option would be to map the Entity 2219 (and other entities you are not interested in to a target of IGNORE in youe Entity mapping. You can Skip based on a particular combination but this would require an import script to define the more complex criteria and execute the skip.
In terms of your mapping import issue are you sure that the Location ID specified in your Excel mapping template actually corresponds to the Location ypou are trying to import the maps to?
The skip function is only meant to be used when importing fixed length files, not delimited files. If you check the FDM admin guide, there is a small seciton that covers this situation and the recommended method to handle this is to use an impot script. Do a search on "skip function" or RES.PblnSkip in the admin guide for the example.
