How field "convert fields" and "convert amounts" work in BI-IP

Hi,

Can anyone explain me how the fields "convert fileds" and "convert amounts" work, while uploading a flat file in BI-IP.

I've managed to upload the file, but still don't know what these fields are for.

Many thanks

    If the "Convert Fields" setting is turned on, field values are interpreted according to user settings (see below).

    Note: If field conversion is turned off then no conversion exits are called. For example, if a characteristic has leading zeros, then the leading zeros also must be supplied in the file.

    "Convert Amounts" setting turned on, fields values need to be provided in internal format (1000 JPY need to be 10.00 in the file).

    If you want to use the external format, you have to convert the amount to internal format in the exit function module.
