datamaster : not loading category and multicategory fields from the csv file

np shared this problem 1 year ago
Known

Hi,

Since morning, I have been trying to load category type field in my data master via importing a .csv file

I have tried editing file using MS Excel, Visual Code / Notepad... no luck

I have spent almost 3-4 hours in debugging this issue and it has been frustrating.

Has anyone faced such problem lately? Can you point to some steps / sample that specifically talks about these two fields to be loaded via importing those files into data master?

Thanks,

np

Dear @np,


Unfortunately, only the text attributes can be imported from a DM through CSV. As a workaround, you could create a DM with all the attributes you need (text, category, ...) and then import all the other instances from the CSV. Hope this helps.

Dear @np,


As a clarification, you won't be able to use the option "Import Data Master from CSV" directly as Justinmind can only import text attributes (Not categories) however if you create first the Data Master (New Data Master) you should be able to "import data from a CSV file" without any issues.

Hi @SoniaDuran, my issue is around loading the data from CSV after I have created data master as you suggested.


Please look at my other thread which was responded by Danielle last week. I have uploaded my csv files and other steps to reproduce the problem. Can you please help me on this asap? I have almost lost 6-7 days on this one.


I would appreciate your help.


Thanks,

We're working on testing this issue. As a consolation for the delay, we can extend your trial to give you adequate time to test Justinmind further. Is your Justinmind trial email the same email you're using for the forum here?

Hi @DanielleSchneider, yes, that's right.

I assume that you don't need .vp file from me.

Thanks,

If you provide us the .vp file we will be able to reproduce exactly the same.
