Import ASCII file: user prompt

Hi,

is it possible to create an additional prompt when using the data manager to import an ASCII file? We have a file that contains all necessary information bar the period. Would it therefore be possible to ask the user at runtime which period the data should be imported to?

Thanks,

Arnold

    Hi Arnold,

    While running the import DM, you can definitely change the advanced logic and create a prompt statement to prompt the user for the time member. However, not sure whether it will be taken care of while importing the data from the flat file or not. Usually, all the records from the flat file are loaded into the fac2 table of the application (provided the members are base level).

    I believe, it will be easier to have the appropriate periods in your flat file.

    Hope this helps.
