IQL for referenced objects during CSV import

When trying to perform a CSV import into a pre-existing Insight database, if the imported attribute is a type "Reference" to another object, an IQL statement is required during the field mapping phase.  Does anyone know what that IQL statement should be?


Example: I have an attribute ("Company Name") in an object called "Contracts" which is an attribute of type reference to the object "Company".  While setting up the CSV sync, on the field mapping page, it requires me to enter an IQL in order to map the referenced field.

This is in Insight version 5.1.1

Hi Marc!

You can read on the import concepts at and there is a section for the object mapping IQL.

There is even a complete page about this at

But basically, if the label for the Company is Name, the IQL would look something like Name = ${CSV_HEADER_NAME} where CSV_HEADER_NAME is the datalocator used for the attribute.

Best Regards
