FDM Import Format Spec with multiple Amount Fields

I'm in the process of setting up an Import specification for one of our sites and the source extract consists of the following fields:
Source Account Description BegBalDR BegBalCr YTDDR YTDCR
01-511-5110     Inventory Adjustment     1,754.00     0     0     14,844.76
I'm am trying to Import Field 5 & 6 and net them if necessary (example: YTDDR - YTDCR) and I continue to get an error. I have tried several diffrent ways but it seems that I can only import one or the other. After reading the FDM Admin guide I am wondering if I need to create a custom Script to accomplish this task.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you,

This might be slightly complicated, but I think its the most direct solution ........
Step 1 -
In your Import Format, assign the Amount as :
FieldName, Start, Length, Expression
Amount, 1, 1, Script=NetAmounts5and6.uss
Step 2 -
Create an Import (DataPump) script called NetAmounts5and6 with the following code :
Function NetAmount5and6(strField, strRecord)
'Hyperion FDM DataPump Import Script:
'Created By:     cbeyer
'Date Created:     2/13/2009 5:57:14 PM
'Get the last two fields
Dim tmpRecord
Dim strCurrentChar
Dim strYTDCR
Dim strYTDDR
Dim x
'Initialize fields
tmpRecord = strRecord
'Ensure we have data
If Trim(tmpRecord) = "" Then Exit Function
strYTDCR = ""
strYTDDR = ""
'One could use the replace command to change all spaces to a delimittable field and then
'split out the string into a one dimensional array using the split command; however,
'This would only work best if there is an exact number of spaces between the two numbers
'Since I do not know if this is true, instead i'm looking for numeric/numeric like characters
'and splitting based off of that.
For x = Len(tmpRecord) To 1 Step -1
strCurrentChar = Mid(tmpRecord,x,1)
If (IsNumeric(strCurrentChar) Or strCurrentChar = "$" Or strCurrentChar = "." Or strCurrentChar = "," ) Then
strYTDCR = strCurrentChar & strYTDCR
Exit For
End If
'Trim down temporary record holder to remove the previous found amount and white space at the end of the string
tmpRecord = RTrim(Left(tmpRecord,x)) 'Remove the first number from the string and white space
For x = Len(tmpRecord) To 1 Step -1
strCurrentChar = Mid(tmpRecord,x,1)
If (IsNumeric(strCurrentChar) Or strCurrentChar = "$" Or strCurrentChar = "." Or strCurrentChar = "," ) Then
strYTDDR = strCurrentChar & strYTDDR
Exit For
End If
'do the math
If IsNumeric(strYTDCR) And IsNumeric(strYTDDR) Then
NetAmount5and6 = strYTDDR - strYTDCR
NetAmount5and6 = 0 'This will cause the record to fail on import
End If
End Function

  • Is it possible to create a form with multiple form fields on a single line?

    Is it possible to create a form with multiple form fields on a single line?  I can't find anything in the documentation or a template that does this.
    I am trying to create a "documents received" checklist with a check box on the left margin, a date-received field to the right of the check box and and a description of the document (Formatted Text) on the far right.
    In the past I have entered the Fixed Text with a word processor, published it to a PDF file, then added the check box and date fields with the Acrobat Forms editor.  I would prefer to use FormsCentral if it is possible.

    We now support multiple fields on one line. This post provides a brief overview.
    Give it a try and send us your feedback.
    Sorry it took so long.

  • Selectively Format Groups with Multiple Columns

    I have a bit of an obscure task I've been trying to hammer out to no avail.  I've searched quite a bit but can't seem to find anyone else who has attempted this.  I have two group by statements, one is a category and the other is a rank.  What I'm trying to do is organize the report so that there are category rows and below each category row is a set of columns for each rank with their associated values as such:
    rank1     rank2     rank3     rank4
    value1   value1    value1   value1
    value2   value2    value2   value2
    rank1     rank2     rank3
    value1   value1    value1
    value2   value2    value2
    I've tried using details>Section Expert>>Layout>Format Groups with multiple column.  Unfortunately, this applies to both groups putting the categories into columns instead of rows, making a mess.  Does anyone know of a way to selectively put groups into columns and ensure alignment?  In the above example the user would be able to compare rank values from multiple categories since they all line up.  Any help with this would be very much appreciated.

    Have you tried using a crosstab? Give this a shot:
    1) Group the report on Category
    2) Create a new group header section. Group Header b
    3) Place a crosstab in this section
    4) The columns would be the Rank field, I'm not sure about what you would like to show in the rows
    5) The summarized field would be the Value field ofcourse
    Let me know how this goes.

  • Best Solution for Creating an Onlne Purchase order form with multiple calculation fields

    I am a bit confused.  Our school has a Forms Central account which works great for our registration forms but I need to find a solution for creating an online purchase form with multiple calculation fields - I know that forms central does not support calculation fields (too bad) but I know that Acrobat Pro does... soooo...
    Can you create the forms in Acrobat and then somehow integrate the advanced features into forms central?  Do they talk to each other?  Is this easy to do? .... I guess another way to putting it is can you create the forms in Acrobat including all of the advanced features for payment calculation and then host it online using Forms Central to manage and collect the data? (I guess that really is my question)
    Thanks (how does this compare to a solution like Formstack?)

    Hi, thanks.
    The naming convention was the consistant up until a point when I read that you need a '.' syntax (?!) - does anyone know if this is true?
    Attached is a version with Bernd Alheit's suggestion and with all the naming of the fields being consistant. It's still not working for me though after doing this and I'm stuck as to why, because I think it should work. I've also tried writing the calcualting line of code in the same manner that Bernd Alheit suggests before I came on here, and it wouldn't work then.
    As with any coding, it must be something to which I have done, but I can't see it anywhere
    Any ideas? Thanks for helping me

  • Importing an album with multiple artists

    How do I import a album with multiple artists as the one album.  Everytime I try to do this it does not collate it into one album, the other artists come up seperatley, also if this is possible can you set so that it works automatically everytime?
    Hope someone can help.

  • FDM Import Format - field name list population

    I am working with an Import Format definition. How can I control the list of possible names that are displayed in the Field Name drop down list box? The lists currently displayed are different from Import Format Group to Import Format Group.

    The selections are controlled by the dimensions of the adaptor assigned to the location using the adaptor. The drop down list names are controlled by the dimension alias.

  • Multiple FDM Import Formats for One Location

    I want to import trial balance data directly from the Oracle Financials database. I'm creating an import integration script to pull the ledgers directly via a SQL statement. My issue is that I also want to be able to write scripts to modify each individual field on the import, similar to a delimited import script where I can have a script for each dimension. Do you know if it's possible to combine import integration and delimited scripts in a single location? I'm guessing it may be a combination of the Import Format and Integration Options settings on the location, but I'm not sure which one should go where. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is not possible. Any adjustments to the data would need to be done within the integration script.

  • FDM - Import Format (Fixed Column Type - No Delimiter)

    Question on FDM. I've built an import format and successfully imported a Fixed Column type text file. Everything imports beautifully. FYI - The format of the file looks just like a Trial Balance with a column for Debits and one column for Credits. In the import format setup, I am using the DrCrSplit script. Weird thing here is that I noticed it just ignored any of the rows where the balance was over 1 million (but brought everything else in perfectly). I've played with the Start and Length fields to no avail.
    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Good day,
    You can add a script as the last item to you amount import format, this will dump the values to a text file which may give you some idea of the issue. Open you file in a hex editor, there may be non printing characters.
    Function dumpamt(strField, strRecord)
    'Declare Local Variables
    Dim objFSAppend
    Dim objFAppend
    Dim strFileAppend
    Dim blnCreate
    'Initialize the file path
    strFileAppend = "\\networkdirectoy\YourFileName.txt"
    blnCreate = True
    'Open the file system object and create the file
    Set objFSAppend = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objFAppend = objFSAppend.OpenTextFile(strFileAppend, 8, blnCreate)
    'Append Data to File
    'Close the objects
    Set objFAppend = Nothing
    Set objFSAppend = Nothing

  • FDM Import Format DR CR

    I am working with a comma delimited file and would like to create an import format. Debit and Credit amounts appear in separate columns. Is it possible to use the DRCR Split expression with a delimited file? If not, can anyone suggest an alternative?
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    The DR/CR split is only for fixed formatted files.
    You will need to use some custom scripting on the 'Amount' field to check for the value in the appropriate position and then import the desired value.
    Thank you

  • How to create a group with multiple data fields

    Post Author: RichS
    CA Forum: Formula
    Using CR XI.  Using CSV input from ODBC text driver.  No problems here.
    There are 3 fields that I want the same group by action.  Is this possible?) 
    If any one of these 3 fields change I want some header information and column fieldnames to display.  The header information I only want displayed on the first page (on the change) and the column fieldnames to display on every page.  I have played around with things like "InRepeatedGroupHeader" and "report group header on each page".  I am not getting all the results that I am looking for though.
    I want report to look like:
    Page header stuff  (to display on every page)  This data consists of some fields that will have static data and will display on every page.  And it consists of 3 non-static fields that I want to group on. 
    Group header stuff that I only want displayed on the first page on a change from one of the 3 fields mentioned above.
    Column headings that I want displayed on every page.
    Details data
    Group footer stuff (details not important for this)
    I get the expected output (column headings displayed on every page, and group header stuff display on the first page on each group change) with one group field.  But I want the group change to happen for all 3 fields.
    It seems simple but I can't find a way to create a "group" so if "field1 or field2 or field3" change, I get the same "group by" action.  I just need to know how to get the expected action.
    I expect that I might have some terms mixed up and/or some important information that would aide you in helping me.  If that is the case please re-post and I will add any missing or mis-stated information.

  • Problem Importing XML Issue with FLAT MultiValued Field.

    I'm importing parts to my repository with a number of fields. This import is used to both UPDATE existing parts as well as add new parts to the catalogs. We want the fields in the import to be updated. There is one flat MultiValued Field that we need to hold just the value that we're adding in the XML. This should overwrite the others. I have tried many different configurations. I want to know how to make this change happen without overwriting fields that are no contained in the XML.

    Map the multivalued field with the source field, then right click on the maultivalued field at destination side, right click on it and set Multi-Valued Update = Replace . By default this property is set to Append which simply append the values from the source field.
    Kindly update us...

  • Import Illustrator File with multiple layers and sublayers as composition retaining all layers and sublayers

    I have drawn a country map with multiple layers and sublayers including streets, cities, rail lines, ...
    Now I want to create a template for my collegues in After Effects.
    For this I want to import the .ai file into After Effects retaining all sublayers and layers in compositions and subcompositions.
    When I do that, I get the first couple of layers correctly, the other ones comes in one merged composition.
    What can I do, to get all layers each as a layer in After Effects?
    Yours, Raphael

    Illustrator only imports the first level of layers. If you have groups or paths below you need to release the groups to layers. The layers will then be stacked in order as sub layers. Then you need to move them up.
    The steps are to select a layer in the Illustrator layer panel, then without selecting any specific element in the layer click on the menu in the top right corner and select release to layers. All a elements in that layer will be converted to layers. Now select them all and drag them up above the original layer. This will leave the original layer empty and put all elements in new layers.
    Here's a tutorial I did a zillion years ago which uses this technique to turn a blend into a morph.
