Denis,
it means the import does not know how to handle the data.
Please double-check your class names in .ini for importmapping.
They may have to goto UPPERCASE

Hi Denis,

Check the XML file that has been created. You can see the entity names in that. Make sure these are the names that you have specified in your import mappings...

The entity relationship is case sensitive.

Hope this helps...

Regards,

Saurabh

Re: Data Exchange Problem - Entity not defined

I receive the exact same error. I'm basically using the ASCII Text import example from Appendix H of the Data Exchange Guide. The class name is SAMPLE.

Help!

One other thing:

My attribute names from the xml file match exactly (same case, etc.) the property names in my import mapping file.

Thanks,
Kurt

Re: Data Exchange Problem - Entity not defined

I was unaware that CLASSNAME in the XML must match the NAME in my Import Mapping.

My Classname was SAMPLE, but my Import Mapping name was SERVER. I set them both to SERVER, and this worked.
