  • Hi @abhi1017 !
    I have the same problem and I tried to solve it as you said - by using Custom Fixed-Position Pattern - YY-MMM.

    But it is still an error. Could you please help me find the mistake? Please see screens below.

  • Hi @NatalyaG 


    Everything seems fine as per depicted in screenshot.

    Could you pls. share screenshot of the module where you are trying the import the FX data.

    Just want to check:-

    1. If you are not importing data while in blue print view.

    2. Are the dimensions pivoted properly for import.

    Yes, sure, please find screens below: 
    Regarding 1st assumption: it's not blueprint view.. :

    Maybe the problem is in the list "Country Currency" used in a module?
    This list looks like:

     When importing Country local Currencies.csv  into the Country Currency List maybe there was a problem with duplicate values.. Please see my mapping there:

     But the importing was resolved in no errors..

    So for now I have no other assumptions on what can be wrong..

  • @NatalyaG 


    Is it mentioned in the course that currency is a child of country.?

    Check this. 

    I think you just need to create a module dimensioned by currency list (Flat list) ,time  and rates(lineitem).

    The country data is provided to map country to the local currency.




  • Hi @abhi1017 !


    I tried to do as you said: I created module dimensioned by currency list (I created Flat list), time and rate (line item).

    But there is still an error.. I'm desperate.. 

    Are you sure it should be Custom fixed-position pattern - YY-MMM?..

    I even don't know what else can be wrong..

  • Hi @rajuvendra01 !


    I have already found the same solution!


    Thanks a lot anyway!

  • @NatalyaG 


    Have you tried using the Anaplan provided Time mapping options or directly used Custom fixed pattern in import action.?

    If directly used Custom option , please try Y-M option provided by default.

    Custom fixed pattern are to be used only when defaults options do not work for mapping because this is like hard coding.



  • Hi @abhi1017 !


    Yes, I just found the solution - using Y-M (and setting language).


    Thanks a lot for your help!

  • U should change the language to english in the time tab

  • Use a custom view and type    YY?MMM


    With this it works fine.

  • I have done with the import now, may be it helps you moving further on the exercise.

    1st attachment shows the final result once you done with the import.

    To get that import done successfully, please look at the mapping in screen shot 2. Other 2 mappings are easy so just attached the time period mapping.

    But before that you should have sys03 module updated like this in the 3rd screen shot attached.

    To get that overview in SYS03, you should have currency conversion list updated like this. attached screen shot. 

    While importing data into currency conversion list, please keep blank for country mapping and also remove 3 extra euros.


    Hope this will helpful?
