Data Import Process
You can import data using GDI after you have created a data import record, specified default data values, and mapped fields in the data file table to the system table. Before you start importing data, make sure you have saved the information you specified in all the screens of the Generic Data Import module.
To start the data import process, do the following:
1
Select the data import record from the GDI browser.
2
Right-click and select Start Import.
GDI starts importing data from the specified data file into the specified system table. If the data file has multiple tables, the module imports data into the corresponding tables.
When the data import ends, the system displays a confirmation message. To confirm that the data was successfully imported, open the appropriate module and look for the imported data.
You can also check the log file associated with the import record to see if the process encountered any errors. Errors recorded during import are shown in the specified log file in the following format:
Record Number <Line where error occurred>, Invalid <Field name> <error number>
...
The log file is saved at the location specified in the Details tab.
