Determine the Incoming Key for Importing

Importing data into Cartegraph allows the use of Special Functions, such as Concatenate and Lookup. These functions require Keys to tell the system specifically where to find the incoming data.

The key is typically the value of the Field, with some exceptions shown here:

Field

Key

 Spatial X

 spatialx

 Spatial Y

 spatialy

 CgId

 cgid

 Parent CgID

 Parentcgid

 

Quantity fields have individual parts (amount and unit) which are also available for importing. The part is appended to the Field Name with an underscore.

For example:

Field

Key

Length

 Length

Length.amount

Length_amount

Length.unit

Length_unit

 

If multiple Filler fields are in the Format, the key is generated by appending a number starting with the second instance.

This example shows multiple Filler fields in a format, mixed with possible UIDs for other fields:

Field

Key

filler

Filler

ID

ID

 filler 

 Filler2

 filler

Filler3

 City 

City
