Restore Journals Error - Column () must be specified in journal file

Hi All,

Here is what I have done -

1. Created a journal template and posted 1 journal.

2. Ran export package which generated a .jrn file with 1 header and 2 rows for journal entries.

3. Opened the .jrn file in notepad and saved as txt.

4. Opened the .txt file from excel and made it delimited with comma and saved it as csv.

5. Made some changes and tried running import journal package with this csv as input.

First, it gave an error saying ACCOUNT_GR not found. I found in an other working environment that the header for account dimension is kept as ACCOUNT_GR even though account dim name is account, so I changed to ACCOUNT_GR in my csv

Then, it started giving this error, Column () must be specified in journal file. I am sure I have saved this correctly as csv, Any other thoughts please?

    3. Post here original jrn file opened in Notepad (screenshot)!

    csv can be different :)

    For sure you can export jrn and import it again without issues!

    You can test that this original jrn file will be successfully imported!

    Just change in Nodepad JRN_ID to 0000000002

    Looks like your issues are result of Excel save to csv - may be " are added or ...

    P.S. Show the dimension list for the model! And please, use "Insert Image" instead of "Insert File" - hard to read!

    • Something is damaged in your journal template!

      Just for test create a fresh copy of ENVIRONMENTSHELL and create test journal. Export/import and you will see that everything is working!

    Hi Vadim,

    The issue was with journal validation BADI. We had a custom code in there which was causing the issue. After we turned off the validation, import was successful. Thanks for your help.

    Regards,

    Ashish
