Use a Conversion File in Different Models

Hello Experts

We are running BPC Netweaver Version 10, SP21.

I am trying to load 1 csv file into two different Models using two different Transformation Files but 1 Conversion File.

Rather than maintain mapping rules in two Conversion Files, Is it possible to maintain the mapping rules in a single Conversion File and use this in different models?

And if so, how would I reference the change in Model within in the Conversion Section of the Transformation File....

Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi Jo,

    No It' not possible,When you validate the conversion file it's always find the conversion file from current connection server Data manager conversion folder.Another problem is that when you mapping the conversion file in transformation conversion section it's also pick the conversion file from same data manager directory and current connection.But you can use one conversion file multiple model but before you need to save the conversion file current connection data manager folder.

    Thank You all for your help.

    The idea of maintaining a 'master' Conversion File in Model A, before switching connection to Model B and saving into the other Model does provide a workaround.

    It means I only have to maintain mapping in one Conversion File, which reduces the duplication of effort and avoids differences in the mapping rules.
