SET DATAIMPORTIGNORETIMESTAMP

Specifies whether to ignore the outline timestamp captured at the time the data was exported.

Syntax

SET DATAIMPORTIGNORETIMESTAMP ON|OFF;
Parameter Description

ON

Ignore the outline timestamp.

OFF

Default. Check the outline timestamp.

Notes

The DATAEXPORT "Binfile" command captures the outline timestamp when it creates a binary export file. By default, when the file is imported, Essbase checks the import file timestamp against the existing outine timestamp to ensure the correct import file is read. You can use SET DATAIMPORTIGNORETIMESTAMP to bypass checking the timestamp.

Caution!

Bypassing the check enables potentially importing the wrong file.

Example

SET DATAIMPORTIGNORETIMESTAMP ON;
DATAIMPORTBIN e:january\basic.bin

Specifies to ignore comparing the outline timestamp with the timestamp on the import tile, and to import the binary export file to the database on which the calculation script is running.
