Data can be loaded into Class manually at either Business or Fund Level. This article details the steps required for manually loading a new data file on Class.
For help with loading data automatically, see Automatic Data Feeds. Alternatively, you can load data manually.
- Fund must be active
- The corresponding bank/investment account with unique wrap account number/SRN/HIN has been activated - most Bank Statement Imports require the "Validate BSB" checkbox to be ticked.
- The data file must be in the standard format for the applicable file type and must be less than 1MB in size. In most cases, a zip of the file (one data file per zip) can be loaded to the system.
Navigate to Business Level > Transactions > Load Data File
- The Load Data File screen will open as per the below screenshot
- Enter the data
- Click the Load File button
The Load Data File screen is designed so you can load further data files using the same page. You can simply change the file to load by changing the input on the File field and then clicking the Load File page. Alternatively, you can click the Reset button to clear all of the fields on the screen and start again.
To check on the status of a loaded data file
- Click on the Browse Loaded File link - this takes you directly to the file you loaded
You can also review loaded files at Business or Fund Level.
Navigate to Business Level >Transactions >Browse Loaded Files or Navigate to Fund Level > Transactions > Browse Loaded Files
Refer to Browse Loaded Files in the User Guide for more information.
Notes on Loading Data Files in Class
- In general, the data files contain a unique ID (either Bank Account Number, Wrap Code, HIN or SRN) which needs to be entered against the corresponding holding account for the Fund which enable the loader to match on. Some data files do not contain a unique ID therefore, the user is required to select the Brand, Fund and Bank Account.
- For Wrap and Contract Note feeds, where the loader finds a fund with the applicable unique ID and the fund does not have an applicable holding account with the applicable unique ID entered, it will create a new holding account with the unique ID.
- In general, the data files contain an unique transaction ID which Class Super stores in the background. The Class Super loader will not allow the same transaction to be loaded more than once by comparing the transaction ID against previously loaded data files of the same format. This is very useful when loading the same data file more than once (or over lapping data files), as the loader will only create events for transactions IDs that have not been previously created in the system.
