Then, proceed to match 'delineation' in sample data properties with data input.

  • In case above is not an issue, match data format with input data in terms of number of fields and type of each field. This can be done in case of smaller sample file.
  • For bigger input file, enable trace and log information in HIP file and diagnose the failing column or data from the logs. To know more about enabling extended logging during EngageOne Generate (Doc1gen), follow Extended logs in EngageOne Generate
