Review batch processing results

After the batch process runs, it creates a log file (.log) and an error file (.err) for each input file. The files are stored under the name and location you specified in the header record of the file.

The .log file displays the number of records that were Committed (successful), Rejected (failed), and Not processed (data not found).

Sample .log file

If the bottom of the log file has a “Batch process finished” message, check to see how many records were rejected. If no records were rejected, batch processing ran successfully. If records were rejected, you need to correct them and then re-run them.

If the bottom of the log file does not have a “Batch process finished” message, processing did not complete. You need to correct the records that were rejected and re-run them.

If a transaction was rejected, the following actions occur:

To re-run transactions that were either rejected or not processed:

Step 1.   Open the .rej file in Excel.

Step 2.   Update or change the data as needed.

Step 3.   Save the file under a new name as both an .imp and an .xls file.

Note:   Rename the file to ensure that you do not overwrite an existing file.

Step 4.   Re-run batch processing for the rejected transactions.

Step 5.   Repeat steps 1 through 4 until all transactions have been processed.
