Add a field to an existing Data Loading File

Level 2

A few new attributes need to be added to an existing Data Loading (file) import workflow.  Is there a way to add fields without rebuilding the entire file format?  The 'add' option is greyed out.  Only the details on an existing row is available.

Yes,

  • Select fixed width column and add your column

  • Select again delimited column and click No if it asked to reinitialize the format

Interesting.  It does reset the Internal name of the columns to be the same as the Label from the header in the file, but I can control that by having the header Labels be the same and it should be fine.  It keeps the data field formatting which is a good thing.

Thank You.
