Dear DHIS2 community,

When doing data elements upload from csv file (both add new or edit existing) we are using the following csv file structure:

Name, uid, code, shortname, description, formname, domaintype, valuetype, aggregationtype, zeroissignificant

The last field is set to true for numeric data element as we would like to store zero data values. As shown in the image below, the checkbox still has to be checked manually.

Is there some step that I am missing, or should I use another syntax for this last column. I have to update hundreds of data elements.

Your suggestions are welcome!

Regards,

Tantely.

Dear Raminosoa,

U can update the dataelement table directly and set the zeroissignificant to true for all after update for dataelement created that day. Then go to data administration->maintenance and the clear application cache.

That works too.
Sql script looks like

Update dataelement set zeroissignificant = true where created::date =‘2017-05-25’

Note that the created helps not to update all dataelements, you can choose any other filter e.g a starting string.

Dear Alex,

Thank you for your suggestion! While trying to run the SQL script I get the following error message: “SQL query contains illegal keywords” when bringing the “zeroissignificant” field name in the script, even closing it between brackets. Here it is:

update dataelement

set [zeroissignificant] = true

where lastupdated::date =‘2017-05-25’;

Thanks,

Tantely.
