    e.g. bqib669xe
    Batch size The maximum number of records in one batch100 (default) | 1-N

    A period-delimited list of table field_ids to which the input data columns map. The order is preserved. Thus, enter a 0 for columns not to be imported. If not specified, the database tries to add unique records. It must be set if editing records. The input data must include a column that contains the record ID for each record that you are updating.

    Obtaining Table ID

    Figure 56.18. Obtaining Table ID


    QuickBaseImportCSV receives data records through the input port and writes them into a QuickBase online database. Generates record IDs for successfully written records and sends them out through the first optional output port if connected. The first field on this output port must be of a string data type. Into this field, generated record IDs will be written. Information about rejected data records can be sent out through the optional second port if connected.
