Anything Else Dictionary

Good Afternoon:

I created a dictionary with a list of names to populate my gender field in Raiser's Edge.  The problem is if the person's name is not in my dictionary then it creates and exception during the import.  Can I create a regular expression that would populate "Unknown" for those not matched in the dictionary?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Lisbeth,

Check you this posting http://www.omaticsoftware.com/Forums/tabid/108/aft/1322/Default.aspx

If you replace titles with names you should get the effect that you are looking for. The key to know is that the dictionary happens sequentially so first it will try to match the name to the list and convert it to Male or Female. If it gets to the last match and it is not already Male or Female then it will output Unknown instead.
Thank you! It worked perfectly!
