DATAIMPORTBIN

Imports the binary output file previously exported with the DATAEXPORT "Binfile" calculation command.

You can use DATAIMPORTBIN to import previously exported binary files. For example, you can use DATAEXPORT "Binfile" and DATAIMPORTBIN as a method for data backup and recovery.

Note:

DATAIMPORTBIN is not supported across Essbase releases or between 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.

Syntax

DATAIMPORTBIN fileName;
Parameter Description

fileName

Full path name for the binary input file to be imported.

Notes

  • The outline timestamp is included with the export file created by DATAEXPORT. By default, the DATAIMPORTBIN process checks the timestamp. Use the SET DATAIMPORTIGNORETIMESTAMP calculation command with DATAIMPORT to bypass checking the timestamp. See SET DATAIMPORTIGNORETIMESTAMP for details.

  • Use DATAIMPORTBIN only with files created by DATAEXPORT "Binfile".

Example

DATAIMPORTBIN e:\january\sales.bin;

Specifies the binary file e:\january\sales.bin is to be imported to the database for which the calculation script is being run.
