Import of a single value to a MultiList
Is there a way to make an import of a single value to a MultiList work? Every time when I try to add a new entry to an existing list, it overwrites everything that already exists there.
Example: A part is released with 3 values A, B, C in the attribute YYY. When I try to update attribute YYY with an import and add value D, it replaces A, B, C with D. Is there a way to import D, so I end up with A, B, C, D?
I tried to update Preferences but still can’t make it to work. The only solution I see is to extract existing values add a new one to the list and import all. However, if I do that, everything is red-lined (and only one entry should be red-lined).
Thank you in advance for help,
If you are running any version before 936 RUP4, you need to get the current value(s) and append the new value to them.
Import up to 936 RUP4 assumes that you provide everything that should be in an attribute, and so it replaces A,B,C with what you give it – D. And yes, if there are existing values, it should not red-line them, but it does. Except for initial data loading, I advise folks to avoid processing multi-list attributes with Import.
