Import manager save Vs Save & Update

Hi all,

I am getting this message when I use Import Server .

515 2008/09/03 11:42:30.091 Some portions of this import map are out of date.

Solution: Please, Launch the Import Manager GUI, preferably using the original source file that the map was generated for, otherwise the same source file and Save Update [File->Save Update] the map.

And when I do the action suggested, it does solve the problem.

My question here is why is this even happening, i use Import manager for the same data file, I am using Save rather than save & Update. So is that causing this problem??

Thanks,

really appreciate any thoughts.

Sudhir

    Hi Sudhir,

    515 2008/09/03 11:42:30.091 Some portions of this import map are out of date.

    - This error points to the problem that when you initially created the map for importing you used a source file and mapped the fields in the source and also performed value mapping.

    - However the source file coming at run time to be imported are having some mismatch with the fields mapping and preferrably with the value mapping.

    - Thats the reason the saved map cannot perform the importing and its throwing an error.

    - To perform automation of importing you have to make sure that the source template used ofr importing does not change taking care of the format as well as the name of the source file.

    - Also note that the source template used for importing has taking care of all the possible value mappings and field mapping taht may occur in the files import at any instance.

    - In case of such changes the SAVE Update option is provided by import mangaer to save the updates in the map.

    - If care is taking to avoid the above possibilities then you will not have to save the map again and again.

    - Recommented way is create a template of teh source file in the desired file format and make available all the possible fields and values taht can occur in the incoming source file and then reuse this template in the saved map to avoid the error.

    Hope It Helped,

    Thanks & Regards

    And If I refer to the Import Manager Reference Guide, this is what it speaks about a Save Update

    To save updated header info to a map:

    1. Open the map.

    2. Choose File > Save Update from the main menu.

    3. MDM saves updated header info to the current map.

    What is header info ???
