Level 1 Model Building #E2 Employees import

Hello,

 

I can't get the Employee list import to work. I've tried all thinkable combinations of settings when importing the employee list to the #E2 Employees numbered list, se enclosed import page and error report. Can someone help me out?

Hi John,

 

#E2 Employee list is a number list, We should not map a column from the source data to act as the name and unique identifier should be the CODE.

Hi , 

 

I am having a similar issue. I receive the error message "

Item Name cannot be mapped for a numbered list when items are identified by Code or Combination of properties.

Run Import"

 

I also do not understand where I can delete the Source. Can you show a screen shot of what you are describing? The linked tutorial is not very clear. 

 

Thank you,

Hi,

 

You have to place your cursor in the Source section of #E2 Employees and hit delete key, Look at the image below, it has to be like this.

Did you get all the columns from the import of the employees csv file to show? I cannot seem to get it. 

 

the csv is the original file and the excel is my download from my model which doesn't show all columns in the csv.

Thank you so much for the nice tutorial to sort out the employee information sir, I have seen this type of model building for lowes employees at myloweslife portal where all the employees of the company can login and check them employee benefits.

Thanks Vignesh, that did the trick! Deleting the entry was the clue.

Best,

John.
