Hi Experts,

How it's possible to define key field during an update process of a new xlsx file?

in the mapping area i don't see any option to define it.

In my case, I need to refresh my data model with modified rows. After the updating, the result in SAC is a duplication of the rows modified in the new xlsx file. I want to underline that i haven't modified the key fields in the xlsx file, but only the values of other fields.

Can someone help me to understand better how the UPDATE works in SAC?

    Hello Francesco,

    for update mode all dimensions are considered key fields, so the import method update is for changing measure value and adding new rows.

    If you want to change dimension values I suggest that you use the import method "Clean and update selected version data" or "Clean and replace subset of data", both are based on the version.

    If you want to schedule regular updates from files I also recommend that you load the data from a file server using the SCP Cloud Connector (see here for more info That way you can load new data from the file without having to reapply your transformation logic in the wrangler.
