I want to import data for a node (emails) in my custom BO (PartnerContactEmail) using data workbench. PartnerContactEmail root level data is created by user from the UI. Only node level data (emails) needs bulk upload hence I am using data workbench to import.

I have created odata service for my PartnerContactEmail which is data workbench enabled.

When I am trying to import data for emails node, I am getting error after import and error log says ExternalKey, PartnerContactEmailRootExternalKey does not exist for.

What does this error exactly mean? I have tried adding the PartnerContactEmail ParentObjectID as PartnerContactEmailRootExternalKey while importing emails data. But still there is an error.

Can someone let me know how we can import data at node level for a BO which already has the root level data created through UI.

Hi Ambuja,

Kindly request you to Export the Custom BO Object using the Export view.

Further, make the required changes to the respective field and Save the file.

Upload this file in the Update view of Data Workbench workcenter.

In case you face issues, kindly report an incident to SAP for further analysis.
