  2. Select migration unit and press Execute migration.
  3. Select the Open Items file and press Process File.
  4. After the validation a warning appears  "Open Items: value XYZ in column Profit Center ID will be truncated; edit source value".

  1. In the Convert Values step.
  2. Go to Edit Value conversion for Profit center ID/Segment ID.
  3. The source value is truncated.
  4. In the target value select the correct profit center/ segment with the long ID.
  5. Confirm the value.
