Hi,

I have an external table that I would like to download to excel each month and then create journal entries.  The rows on the external file vary per month.  I would like to set this up so I'm not having to copy/paste or creating new formulas each month.  Below is an example of the external table and what I would like the end result to look like.  .  Please let me know if this is possible.

'Before'
Batch      Amount      Date
11568      100         6/30/2016
11475      50          6/30/2016
11837      300              6/30/2016

'After'
Batch      Amount      Date      Type
11568      100      6/30/2016      Debit
11475      50      6/30/2016      Debit
11837      300      6/30/2016      Debit
11568      100      6/30/2016      Credit
11475      50      6/30/2016      Credit
11837      300      6/30/2016      Credit
