    Hello priya,

    It's ofcource possible to load countries without keys like IN, JP or DE. But you have to create your own char and change all the datadargets, infources, update rules...You have to make lot's of changes...

    I recommend to you to use dtandart solution. Use it with keys like IN, JP, DE...

      I'm not sure what you mean when you say without keys? Without keys how would the system know a unique value. So you would end up having multiple values of the same value.

      The system defaults the main IO as the key.
