Understand subledger datasets
See Subledger datasets described for the types of subledger dataset you can import into Caseware Cloud. Each dataset description lists the mandatory and optional fields making up transactions for that type of subledger dataset and the purpose of each field. The diagram below explains the basic elements of the subledger dataset descriptions.
For more information on importing transaction data from CSV files, see Import the client’s transactions from a CSV.
Anatomy of a subledger dataset description
|User-facing name. The name of the Caseware field as it appears in the drop-downs of the Import Data window, where you map fields in your incoming data to Caseware fields.
|Field description. This details the purpose of the field and where applicable examples of possible values.
|Internal field name. The internal name of the Caseware field, which you will need to know if you are manipulating data imported for analytic notebooks or other third-party development work where you are manipulating the raw imported data.
|Primary key. If a field is a primary key, its value is used to uniquely identify the data entry or row of the data.
Data type. The types of values a field can have and the operations that can be performed.
|Required. Indicates whether the field is required to be able to import a transaction of this type into Caseware Cloud.
|Primary key alternate. If the field that is designated as the primary key is absent from the data you are importing, the value of the primary key alternate, or one of several primary key alternates, is used to create a unique identifying code for the data entry by concatenating their values together:
