Import Recipient Information From Two Sources

Hi,

I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to update recipient filter information from two different source. I have one recipient import task that populates recipient and filter information. I have another data source that has the same information except for two other fields that I need to add from that QVW to the filters. I would like to import from this second document and just added two more values to each of the filters.

Import 1: Create recipient data and a filter with two fields

Import 2: Add two new field values to each of the filters already created

Result: Recipient data from import 1 and filter data from import 1 and import 2

Reports are being delivered from two data sources in the same distribution, so I need to be able to apply the filters to each of the documents. There's currently no option to combine the QVWs.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Scott

I actually just figured out how to do it this morning using the CustomFilterConnection and CustomFilterID selections in the recipient import setup. I ran the regular import and then another adding new values for these fields and two filter selections were created for the recipient.

More research seems to suggest that I need to be able to change connection sources since recipient import sources seem to assign filter connections to the default no matter where the QlikView object it's located.
