Issue

Workaround

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 causes the error are as follows:

  • Source module must have an extra dimensionality (List).
  • Target module must have a Subsidiary View.
  • Both Source/Target Line Items are of the same format of Data, Text, Time Period or List.

 

Take note that if the third point was either Boolean or Number, the module to module import will be successful because because numbers and booleans are not truly blank when they have no value. They are 0/False.

To workaround this issue:

  • There must be cell value in the Source Line Item.
  • Add Source Module List as an Applies To to the Target Line Item and remap the import.
