Key field from content - Sender file adapter content conversion

I am reading a source CSV file that has this structure. All rows in the source file are the same structure: line items of a PO. But there will be multiple POs in a single file, identified by the PO number as one column in the file.
PONum,LineItemNum,Qty,Description
001,1,34,Carrots
001,2,17,Apples
001,3,22,Bananas
002,1,4,Mangos
002,2,9,Coconuts
003,1,44,Grapes
Goal is to generate 3 messages, one for each PO:
<po>
     <num>001</num>
     <line_items>
          ... 3 line items for PO # 001 ...
     </line_items>
</po>
<po>
     <num>002</num>
     <line_items>
          ... 2 line items for PO # 002 ...
     </line_items>
</po>
<po>
     <num>003</num>
     <line_items>
          ... 1 line item for PO # 003 ...
     </line_items>
</po>
Is there any way to use the Content Conversion Key Field Name to group the line items into the correct 3 messages? "Key Field Name" expects a static identifier for each type of row; but mine varies by the PO number in the content.
Or do I need to do this in the mapping? If so, what is the easiest way to split 1 large message of all line items into multiple target messages based on the PO number? (I assume this is better than sending individual line item messages and aggregating them later, as long as the file size is OK.)
Thanks in advance!

Hi Robert,
If ur goal is to split into 3 messages one for each PO, you can go for message split and using graphical mapping you can achieve that.
Within the message mapping go to the tab Messages.
Change the occurrence of the target message to 0..unbounded.
Also this link may help you.

    HI
    Read the file without using key field. Just define the FCC parameters Header and Items PI will pick the file.
    DT_Source
       Record
         Header 0..1

  • Key Field Value in Sender File Adapter

    Hi,
    I am having a File>XI>File scenerio.
    The incoming file is having a fixed length content and is coming in as a single Header and multiple Line Item records. The single header is the first record and the rest are line item.
    The problem is that we do not have a keyfield, for the header as well as the Item records.
    Is there any possible configuration that I can do to still read the file; without specifying the parameters, xml.header.keyFieldName & xml.Header.keyFieldValue for the header and xml.Item.keyFieldName & xml.Item.keyFieldValue for the Item structures in which I would like to read my data.
    I am curretly using SP12.
    Regards,
    Anshul

    Hi Mohan,
    The Source File is coming like below:
    121000248      xyz      20051215120158
    9600193091        1000000      1000000      JEN'S TEST 9600193091        1000001      1000001

    First record will always be a header and the rest of the records will be Item records.
    Note: There will always be one header in the File.
    The problem is that we do not have a keyfield, for the header as well as the Item records
    Is there any possible configuration that I can do to still read the file; without specifying the parameters, xml.header.keyFieldName & xml.Header.keyFieldValue for the header and xml.Item.keyFieldName & xml.Item.keyFieldValue for the Item structures in which I would like to read my data.

    Hi,
    If you don't have constant key value for your detail records, then you can not directly get the required xml.
    So in this case, you can read all the records in a common Row model, i.e each record will be considered as a one row with all the values, and then split this row with Substring or java functions in the mapping.
    Even you can do this in the Adapter module .
    If you have key value for each record to identify then you can try with content conversion.

  • Sender file adapter - content conversion question

    Hi all
    We have a .csv file to be passed to XI that has column headings as well. Is there a way of stripping the header using "Content conversion". We declared the RecordsetStructure as "header,1,item,*" but then it needs a keyFieldname and identifier which is obviously not available as the first line only has column headings.
    Hoping for a reply soon.
    Thanks
    Salil

    Salil,
    In RecordsetStructure you define as header,1,item,9999999999. But if you have more than 9999999999 records then the extra records after this will come as a second file.
    If you expect more item records then increase the number of 9's. Then we dont need to give the key field.

  • Sender file adapter content with repeating structure

    i have a scenario where my source file could have the following structure:
    node1 (1:1)
    node2 (0:1)
    node3 (0:n)
    node1 (1:1)
    node2 (0:1)
    node3 (0:n)
    each node will have many fields. the three different nodes can repeat like this unbounded times. how would i define my content conversion and my data type to capture this structure? any help is appreciated.

    hi chris,
    make your Content Conversion Parameters as:
    Document Name "your doc_name"
    Document Namespace "your name space"
    Recordset structure node1,1,node2,1,node3,*,
    Key Field Name Record Type
    Key Field Type String
    To differentiate the incomings to each nodes, we need a key value
    say 01 for each node1 (you can use your own) *
    Entry in FCC (below table)
    node1.fieldFixedLengths "enter the length of the fields separated by commas
    node1.fieldNames  "specify the actual fieldnames separated by comma (no whitespace)
    node1.keyFieldValue "enter the key value - for node1 i took as 01" *
    make same entries for all the nodes

  • Sender File Adapter-Content conversion for a tab delimited file

    Hi all,
    I have a FIle to IDoc scenario, where the File is with the structure Header,Detail,Trailer.
    Header and Trailer are with fixed field lengths, whereas the detail records are tab delimited.(Functional spec says delimited by H'05').
    I have given the parameters as follows:
    Header.keyFieldValue     H
    Header.fieldFixedLengths     1,1,4,1,8
    Header.fieldNames     a,b,c,d,e
    Header.endSeparator     'nl'
    Detail.fieldNames     a,b,c,d,e,f
    Detail.fieldSeparator     '0h05'
    Detail.keyFieldValue     LOA
    Detail.endSeparator     'nl'
    Trailer.fieldFixedLengths     1,1,8
    Trailer.fieldNames     a,b,c
    Trailer.keyFieldValue     T
    ignoreRecordsetName     true
    In SXMB_MONI, I get the payload with just the Header and Trailer and not the detail records, even though my file has so many records in it.I m pretty sure, this happens because of my Detail.fieldSeparator parameter.
    Can anyone please help me with this?What is the correct value for this parameter?
    Thanks a lot in advance!
    Anjana.

    first of all make sure with a hex editor that the hex code of the delimiter sign is really 05. This is an odd character, as the normal tab is hex 09.
    when you have confimred it, check online help for file adapter config for the correct entry of hex codes. I think it is something like '0x05',

    Multiple <Item header> and multiple <Item details>
    Do the content conversion like this and then in mapping, convert it to any structure you need.

  • Sender File Adapter - File Content Conversion

    Hello,
    i do have a problem with the file content conversion at the sender file adapter.
    I have configured the file content conversion with key field defined
    keyfield: key
    recordsetstructure is set as head,1,item,*
    head.fieldSeparator  | 
    head.beginSeparator  |
    head.endSeparator  |
    head.keyFieldValue  H
    head.fieldNames  key,....
    item.fieldSeparator  | 
    item.beginSeparator  |
    item.endSeparator  |
    item.keyFieldValue I
    item.fieldNames  key,....
    When i run it like this it will not read since it has a problem to identify the key fields.
    When ever i change the whole logic to be not based on fieldseparator but on fixed length, everything is working perfectly fine.
    but this unfortuantly doesn't help as i have no fixed structure for the rest of the fields.
    also when i change the recordsetstructure to head,1,item,1 my file is also processed correctly, of corse only for the first line, it at least tells me that the file structure is correctly defined.
    Can anyone help why the identification for the keyfields doesn't work with field names and separator but in the same set up with fixed lengths ?
    thanks a lot

    Hello All,
    thanks for the helpful answers.
    So i tried Jayan tip and removed the begin Separter.
    Unfortuantly my file is really looking like this |H|...|...| for the header record
    and for the item record |I|...|...| ( this was an" I" like in Item ...
    In my opinion this means i really do have a begin seperator which is the same like the field separator.
    When i removed it from both the file and the config it started to work.
    So i wrote an java function which will trow away the first digit in this case and integrated it in my szenario.
    So that when this file is read there is no | as a begin flag anymore.
    And the whole thing starts to work, this sounds more like a bug then a feature but anyway i am happy.
    so thanks a lot

    2.Summary record line occurs only once at the end
    I have defined a datatype as follows
    <DT>
       <Recordset>
            <Detail>
               All the detail fields
            </Detail>
           <Summary>
               All the summary fields
           </Summary>
    </Recordset>
    </DT>
    Now the number of detail record is not know. But there is only one summary record.
    In the sender file adapter do we need to configure the keyfield paramter? If the number of detail record is * .
    The problem is the input file does not has any key field to parse/identify the detail or sumary record.
    Any alternative?
    Thanks

    hi ,
      if you have two structures so do like this:
    Recordset strucrure                detail,summary*
    detail.fieldFixedlength          :          10,20
    detail.fieldNames                 :        xxx,yyy
    summary.fieldFixedlength     :         10,20
    summary.fieldNames           :        www,vvv
    rest configuration will be same.
    hope this will help.
    regards
    HONEY

    how to pick this file using FCC from sendere flat file adapter without keyfields , and i can use fixed length also

    Hi,
    with multiple nodes structure( like header and item in your case) you need to have a key field to process this file to a desidered structure using FCC.
    Alternatively you can pick all these records as a single node type and classify it as header/items in your mapping by identifiing how each one differs frm other.

    how to pick this file using FCC from sendere flat file adapter without keyfields , and i can use fixed length also

    Sridhar,
    You can use a work around like this. Create a generic Data Type something like below.
    <Message Type>
       <Recordset> - root node
          <ROW>  - element with occurence 0..unbounded
    Now create an outbound MI with the above MT, in FCC in sender file adapter, give Recordset structure as ROW, *
    This way , you will read the entire file inside XI as an XML like below
    <ROW> header record </ROW>
    <ROW> item record 1 </ROW>
    <ROW> item record 2 </ROW>
    <ROW>....</ROW>
    In XI , since your header row & item rows are fixed length, now, you can use that in a UDF in your message mapping , or parse the xml using DOM parser in Java mapping, you should be good. Hope this helps.
