I am new to Raiser's Edge and Importomatic. I would like to ensure that the preferred address for a constituent does not get overwritten during an import. For instance, we are importing addresses of type "Home" from Banner. If a constituent has a preferred address which is a "Business" address in RE, we would like this address to remain as preferred.
I was able to achieve the above through use of a virtual field. However, if a constituent has a "Home" address that is preferred, then the new "Home" address that is imported should become preferred; currently, that is not the case for this test scenario, as the Preferred virtual field is set to No. I was looking to use the API to accomplish this with some additional coding, but I would need to be able to read the RE data first before determining the value for the preferred flag for the incoming address. I am open to all solutions.
Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
