GDPdU Filter Examples

The following topic provides examples of how you can use and combine different filter types when you set up your GPDdU exports. By setting filters appropriately, you can improve performance.

The following examples use the G/L Entry and Cust. Ledger Entry tables for data. They assume that you have specified the following date in the Export Business Data batch job.

Start Date = 01/01/2013

End Date = 12/31/2013

Setting Up Export Record Source Examples

Period Field No.

On the Data Export Record Source page, the set up is as described in the following table.

Table No. Table Name Period Field No. Period Field Name Table Filter
17 G/L Entry 4 Posting Date No filter set.
21 Cust. Ledger Entry 4 Posting Date No filter set.

Export Results

  • G/L Entries with Posting Date between 1/1/2013 and 12/31/2013.
  • Cust. Ledger Entries with Posting Date between 1/1/2013 and 12/31/2013.

Table Filter

In this example, in addition to Period Field No. information, you also specify a table filter. This is useful when you want to not only include a starting date and ending date for your export, but also include an additional filter to specify other criteria, for example, amounts.

Table No. Table Name Period Field No. Period Field Name Table Filter
17 G/L Entry 4 Posting Date
21 Cust. Ledger Entry Cust. Ledger Entry: Posting Date=..31-12-13

Export Results

  • G/L Entries with Posting Date between 1/1/2013 and 12/31/2013.
  • Cust. Ledger Entries with Posting Date earlier than 01/01/2014.

Date Filter Field No. and Date Filter Handling

The following example demonstrates setting Date type FlowFilters. If a table has more than one date FlowFilter, you cannot specify one to use, but you can specify how the date filter should be handled.

Table No. Table Name Period Field No. Period Field Name Table Filter Date Filter Handling
18 Customer Customer: Net Change (LCY)=<>0 Period
21 Cust. Ledger Entry 4 Posting Date Cust. Ledger Entry: Remaining Amt. (LCY)=<>0 End Date Only

Export Results

  • Customers that have Net Change (LCY) <> 0 in the period from 1/1/2013 and 12/31/2013.
  • Cust. Ledger Entries with Posting Date between 01/01/2013 and 12/31/2013 that have Remaining Amt. (LCY) <> 0 at 12/31/2013.

Date Filter Handling for the Same Table

In this example, you set multiple filter definitions for the same table.

Table No. Table Name Table Filter Date Filter Handling
18 Customer Customer: Net Change (LCY)=<>0 Period
18 Customer Customer: Net Change (LCY)=<>0 Start Date Only

Export Results

  • Customers that have Net Change (LCY) <> 0 in the period from 1/1/2013 and 12/31/2013.
  • Customers that have Net Change (LCY) <> 0 on the day before the start date.
