Changing a column label causes unexpected or blank results with easy import.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Navigate to System Definition > Dictionary.
  2. Add a new column into the table [ast_contract]:
    • Type: String
    • Column label: Column A
    • Max length: 100
  3. Navigate to [ast_contract].
  4. Initiate an easy import.
  5. Download the Excel Template.
  6. Populate the column named Column A with any value (for example, TEST 1).
  7. Upload the Excel Template.
  8. Follow through (Preview Imported Data) and then Complete Import.
    This creates the temporary import table and transform map.
  9. Navigate back to System Definition > Dictionary.
  10. Modify the the label for Column A (from step 2) to Column Z (must be alphabetically after the previous label).
  11. Navigate to [ast_contract].
  12. Initiate another easy import.
  13. Download the Excel Template.
  14. Populate the column named Column Z with any value (for example, TEST 2).
  15. Upload the Excel Template.
  16. Follow through (Preview Imported Data) and then Complete Import (adds new column to the temporary import table and create new transform map).
    Column Z is not populated in the new record. Transform map is still mapping u_column_a to u_column_a, but expected behavior should be u_column_z to u_column_a.


Delete the column with the old label from the temporary/staging import table. The transform map will then be able to map the correct columns.
