Below is the mapping of the line items and the Grid View after loading.
1) The Code cells are blank. What item should be mapped to Code?
2) Are Code, Name, Department, Country, Start Date, Leave Date, Current Salary, Commission % supposed to be in Rows or Columns?
In the Model downloaded as per training activity, these are displayed as Columns. Wondering if there are any steps missing at this point or are there future activities that result in these being displayed as Columns.
The code should be derived via a formula, no source items need to be mapped to the "Code" line item for the import. The code is related to the #E2 Employees list, you will need to use the appropriate formula to return the CODE for a list ITEM.
To your second question, you can change the view of a module by selecting Pivot, moving the elements and then saving the view as default. From a functionality perspective, it doesn't matter if the items are in rows or columns (the calculations will work regardless). The question you must ask yourself is: what view makes the data easiest to read (Line Items in Columns is likely the best bet here).
Hope this helps! Shout if you have any more questions.
Re: Level 1 Model Building SYS08 Employee Details Import Issue
I was stuck with this too and I'm at a similar stage in the training. So the output in the screenshot above which @Star has shared is correct?
Also, I populated the code line item with a name and the only way to fix it was by deleting the line item and inserting a new Code line item again in the module. I reimported again by not ignoring code in the mapping (not sure if this step was required again though).
Appears it may be a mapping issue on the Start Date line item, likely you need to update the Custom Mapping on that field so that the format in the import is set to match the file. See screenshot below to illustrate.
