Altova MapForce 2024 Basic Edition

Version 2020 Release 2


A new Manage Libraries window is available that enables you to view and manage all function libraries imported at document and at program level (this includes MapForce user-defined functions and other kinds of libraries). This makes it possible, for example, to easily copy-paste user-defined functions from one mapping to another, see Copy-Pasting UDFs Between Mappings.

When a mapping file imports libraries, the path of imported library files is relative to the mapping file by default, see Relative Library Paths. You can still import mappings at application level, like in previous releases, but in this case the library path is always absolute.

If a mapping file imports XSLT libraries, you can generate XSLT code that references the imported library files using a relative path. The new option is available in the Mapping Settings dialog box.

Version 2020


When replacing values with the help of a look-up table, you can paste tabular data (key-value pairs) from external sources such as CSV or Excel into the mapping. Also, it is easier to handle cases when a value is not found in the predefined look-up table—processing such values no longer requires the use of substitute-missing function. See Using Value-Maps.
