Static Mapping of Fields.

Jan 20, 2010 at 2:35 PM

First, I want to thank you very much for taking the time to create this tool. , it saved me lots of hours.

 

I have noticed that in many cases  you can do a better job of Field Mapping and data manipulation on the CSV File in EXCEL. , then use the tool to perform the migration.

That is because of I have over 145 fields on 4 forms I am working on,

I have changed the code so that the field mapping is static ..

Meaning 

Field 1 in CSV  ===== Field 1 in InfoPath XML.

Field n in CSV ===== Field n in InfoPath XML.

To do that , you will need to extract your XML schema , first into EXCEL and that is Simple  [ Trim the header and use  ' : ' as the delimiter ].

 

when done, you will notice that this version of the code , will keep the mapping on the left same as the mapping to the right, and you are set.

I am trying to upload the code , and hope that works.
