Hi Misbah,

 

Thanks for reply. I will check your solution and get back to you.

another question: should source file date format match with the date format target. In my case Target file contain Time dimension  in fiscal Year format. 

 

Thanks

Please read the article I have elaborated most of the cases there and if it doesn't fit anywhere you can use Custom format. Do let me know if you need any help on that.
