  1. Added a new Transformation: Treat input with only #’s as blank

This substitutes a blank for a field that contains only #’s   It overwrites a field in Zoho CRM with a blank field if the source is only #’s such as  # or  ## or ###

This is useful for importing data from SAP.  They use ### for a blank field.

  1. Added new column in the Mapping screen for target internal names.


  1. Added a new warning to detect if all the currently mapped fields are also checked for matching “on”. You typically match on two or three fields and update some that are not set to matching. The only use case for checking all fields that are mapped to matching “on” is for Deleting records.
