Import fails with "The dimensions in the target module do not match the import definition" error.

Occasional Contributor

Import fails with "The dimensions in the target module do not match the import definition" error.

This item has been identified as an outstanding known issue.  A workaround is provided until the issue is officially fixed.

Issue

A module-to-module import fails with the following error:

"Import into <XX> module failed: The dimensions in the target module do not match the import definition" 

The specific conditions that cause the error are as follows:

  • Source module has an extra dimension (List)
  • Target module has a Subsidiary View
  • Both source and target Line Items are of the same format (Text, Time Period, List)

Note: If the format in the 3rd point above is either Boolean or Number, the module-to-module import will be successful because booleans and numbers are not truly blank when they have no value.  They are set to False/0.

Workaround

To workaround this issue:

  • There must be a cell value in the source Line Item.
  • Add source module list as an 'Applies To' to the target Line Item and re-map the import.

If this workaround is not suitable in your use case, please contact Support at support@anaplan.com.
