Dataport Duplicate OnAfterImportRecord processing

jelittlejohnjelittlejohn Posts: 61Member
Hi all,

I am working in 5.0 importing order information. The file I am importing is comma delimited and contains both header and line information in each record. The current method is for the user to create their order header with customer info and then launch my dataport from the function menu. In this case, I have decided to handle all of the processing myself. I'm just using the dataport to get the fields into global variables that I have created. Then I insert/modify/etc as I see fit. I am using Sales Header as my dataitem even though the record I'm working with already exists. My problem is that it seems the OnAfterImportRecord code fires twice no matter what. I have tried turning autosave and autoupdate off, but when I do, I get an error that my sales line record is locked. I have come up with a workaround where I check the sales line table to see if my item already exists but I don't like it in that it would mishandle an import where the same item was listed multiple times. My workaround is shown in the code below but the bottom line is that the trigger fires twice per line and I can't figure out how to fix it for the long term. This dataport is based on another with a similar function AND the same problem so there are several unused globals listed. Any thought or ideas would be greatly appreciated:

                    IF NOT sh.FIND('-') THEN
                     ERROR('Sales Header not found.');
                    PO := FALSE;

    I would use the document type in your setranges.
    sh.SETRANGE("No.", Orderno);
    IF NOT sh.FIND('-') THEN

    I've done somthing like this in the past for Credits. Where the user creates the header and we import the lines. I use the Sales Line as the dataitem since the header already exists.

    On my function button I have this code:
    OnPush()
    CLEAR(GetItemFromFile);
    GetItemFromFile.SetGlobalParameters(0,"Document Type","No.");
    GetItemFromFile.RUNMODAL;
    

    Globals
    Name DataType Subtype Length
    GetItemFromFile->Dataport->Internet Returns Import //basically my dataport name
    

    My dataport is like this, where I have created a function to get the info from the header like doc no & type called "SetGlobalParameters". then I can use those values to import lines into the header that I'm working on.:
    OnPreDataItem()
    ReturnLineNo := 0;
    
    OnAfterImportRecord()
    ReturnLineNo := ReturnLineNo + 10000;
    "Sales Line"."Document Type" := "Sales Line"."Document Type"::"Credit Memo";
    "Sales Line".VALIDATE("Document No.",vDocumentNo);
    "Sales Line".VALIDATE("Line No.",ReturnLineNo);
    "Sales Line".Type := "Sales Line".Type::Item;
    "Sales Line".VALIDATE("No.",ReturnItemNo);
    "Sales Line".VALIDATE(Quantity,ReturnQty);
    "Sales Line"."Return Reason Code" := ReturnBoxCode;
    
    SetGlobalParameters(DocSubType : Integer;DocType : Integer;DocNo : Code[20])
    vOrderType := DocSubType;
    vDocumentType := DocType;
    vDocumentNo := DocNo
    

    Works Great! If you think the trigger if firing more than once perhaps it's running for every document type option since you're not SETRANGE-ing "order" and you can always throw in a MESSAGE('Whatever'); in your code so you can see what & when it's firing.
