7. What operations can Import Manager perform?
Import Manager provides a mechanism for converting data from existing files to your People soft application data tables. Record definitions are foundations for Import Manager.
1. Field formats and editing: Import manager is used to upload file data from a designated source file into your application database. The source file containing data to be imported must be a fixed length ASCII file (. DAT FILE)
2. SQL Inserts: The Import manager performs only SQL inserts. This means that new rows of data with a unique key can be inserted into SQL table. Updates to an existing row of data cannot be done through import manager.
3. SQL commit: The SQL commit takes place at the end of each import load. If the import stops before the end-of-life, none of the new rows of data will be written to the database.

8. Will the import manager write data values to the target table if it encounters key values in the source table?
NO – If the utility encounters key values on the source file, error message is flashed and the rows will not be written to the database. To overcome this problem, we will have to enable “by pass key value” control in the Import manager.

9. Options available to run Import Manager?
The following options are available to run import manager.

1. Edit: Read through the rows to imported and processes an edit report of the
Results. No data is written to the database.

There are six types of records

1. SQL table - Corresponding physical SQL table in the database we create with build option.
2. SQL View – It is not a physical SQL table on the database, it gives the replicate of joined tables. It is used for security and faster access.
3. Dynamic View – It is actually stored in the form of SQL view text and is executed at runtime. It uses the built in indexes. Whereas normal view is executed and stored in the database.
4. Derived/Work record - It is a temporary workspace to be used during on line panel processing and is not stored in the database, therefore derived work records are not built. They cannot be seen in the update/display mode. Once the panel is cancelled it is removed from the buffer.
5. Sub Records – A group of fields commonly used in multiple records.
6. Query View – A Query view is a view constructed using People soft Query tool.
