Validation of transaction data

Uploading your completed transactions template will automatically progress you to the Validation step where you can validate your import.

Validation issues

If validation issues exist, the Validation step will provide a short summary of issues, for you to review and make any required amendments in your transactions file.

Once you have corrected the issues in the file, click Back to go to the Upload step to re-upload the amended file.

Transaction import: Validation issues

Validation summary

If no validation issues exist, the Validation step will provide a short summary of the file that you are attempting to upload. The summary displays the following details:

  • Filename: The name of the file you uploaded in the previous step.
  • Value: The total value of transactions within the file.
  • Transactions: The total number of transaction lines within the file.
  • Unrecognized references: The number of unrecognized references within the file, i.e. references which do not match your trading partner’s primary data. Transaction lines with unrecognized references may still be imported, however the transactions with these unrecognized references will not be reconciled within your trading partner's Enable channel. This means that the transactions will not be included for calculations.
  • Transactions for: The date range for the transactions within the file.

If no issues are displayed, review the validation summary of your import to check you are happy with the details, and click Next to proceed to the Review step.

If you need to make any changes to the transactions, click Back to go to the Upload step to re-upload the file.

Transaction import: Validation summary

Transactions already exist

If the transaction lines that you are trying to upload are within the date range of a previous upload, a prompt will appear at the bottom of the screen asking whether you would like to keep or remove the existing transactions.

  • Keep transactions: Click this option to import all of the transaction lines normally, i.e. the existing transactions will be kept in addition to the transactions you are currently importing. Your trading partner will still be able to identify duplicate transactions during their reconciliation process in Enable.
  • Remove transactions: Click this option if the previous transaction import was done incorrectly, and if the transactions for this date in your current upload file should replace the previous transactions for this date.
