Tag By Import

When you import records, Collect! allows you to easily select and tag records so that you can perform a batch process on them. In your file to import, records need not be in consecutive order. Collect! can still use the file to tag the records so that you can process them. This requires familiarity with Collect!'s Import/Export module.

When you add or edit a debtor record when importing, they are naturally tagged. This would give you a tag list to continue with your next process. Basically you are keying on the data you are importing to find the account. This by itself is not enough to tag the debtor. There must be a data change on the account to induce Collect! to tag the account.

Therefore the sample shows changing the status code to TAG. It is not important what field gets changed, as long as a change happens. This method of filling the Status with TAG is a good way to keep a piece of data as an identifier to be used later for other processes.
