    Import Profile / new Merge rule: Completed with Errors

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Problem Symptoms:
    * creating import profile that would replace all existing fields except for all 035 fields
    * created new merge rule adapting the syntax from the help file
    * after running the profile, get message "completed with errors"; record is not updated
    * input file contained one record: number of records processed 1, number of matches found 1
    * no other action or error occurred

    The merge rule had a trailing space after the "end" statement. After removing this space, saving the rule, and running the import again, the merge was successful.

    To identify and remove trailing spaces in merge rules, perform the following steps:
    1) Go to Alma Menu > Resource Management > Open Metadata Editor
    2) In the left-hand menu > Merge, double-click the relevant rule
    3) Save (to open the drool syntax window)
    4) Select all (ctrl+A) to reveal whether there are trailing spaces
    5) Remove any trailing spaces
    6) Save
