Message Availability

This message works regardless whether the caller is connected to the server or offline.


Pass an instance of this class to the Execute method, which returns an instance of GetDistinctValuesImportFileResponse.

Privileges and Access Rights

To perform this action, the caller must have privileges on the ImportFile entity and access rights on the record specified in the ImportFileId property. For a complete list of the required privileges, see GetDistinctValuesImportFile message privileges.

Notes for Callers

Use this message only after you have created a parse table by using the ParseImportRequest message. Do not use this message after you use the ImportRecordsImportRequest message. You cannot access the parse table after the import job submitted by the ImportRecordsRequest message has finished running.

The following example shows how to use this message. For this sample to work correctly, you must be connected to the server to get an IOrganizationService interface. For the complete sample, see the link later in this topic.

' Retrieve the first two distinct values for column 1 from the parse table.
' NOTE: You must create the parse table first using the ParseImport message.
' The parse table is not accessible after ImportRecordsImportResponse is called.
Dim distinctValuesRequest As New GetDistinctValuesImportFileRequest() With
        .columnNumber = 1,
        .ImportFileId = importFileId,
        .pageNumber = 1,
        .recordsPerPage = 2
Dim distinctValuesResponse As GetDistinctValuesImportFileResponse =

' Output the distinct values.  In this case: (column 1, row 1) and (column 1, row 2).
Dim cellNum As Integer = 1
For Each cellValue As String In distinctValuesResponse.Values
    Console.WriteLine("(1, " &amp; cellNum.ToString() &amp; "): " &amp; cellValue)
    cellNum += 1
Next cellValue
