Batch file for resolving Duplicate caseid

Postby sah » April 15th, 2017, 8:22 am

Hello Josh/Martin
I need help in resolving duplicates cases by in export batch file and I don't want to eliminate the cases but rather add them to the data set. So if cases 10001 repeat I want to change one of them to case 1000199

Any Help.


Thanks,
Sah

Hi Sah,
Can you find any variable (or actually a set of variables) that will distinguish the cases with the duplicated IDs? If so then you can just add this/these variables to the CASE_ID variables in your export batch file. This should be a quick fix.
