Product: ImportOmatic Connector for Luminate Online

Description: This solution describes how to export to date fields from The Raisers Edge in Luminate Online

Environment: All

The date format required by the Luminate Online API is YYYY-MM-DDT00:00:00 and the format provided by The Raisers Edge is MM/DD/YYYY. When sending dates from RE to LO, the date will need to be reformatted. A dictionary can be created to reformat the date during export.

2. At the prompt to create the dictionary from a table, select No

3. Enter the following values:

**Please note that all 4 groups are needed and must be in this order

                Replacement Value line 1: $3-$1-0$2

                Value To Match On line 1: ^(\d{2})/(\d{1})/(\d{4})$


                Replacement Value line 2: $3-0$1-$2

                Value To Match On line 2: ^(\d{1})/(\d{2})/(\d{4})$


                Replacement Value line 3: $3-0$1-0$2

                Value To Match On line 3: ^(\d{1})/(\d{1})/(\d{4})$

                Value To Match On line 4: ^(\d{1,2})/(\d{1,2})/(\d{4})$
