Hi there,

as someone already mentioned, seeing only an example of the datafeed input would be useful.

It looks like each data line of the datafeed is a batch of invoices, and each invoice, which is separated by a semicolon, it is a series of columns separated by a comma. Each of these invoices has in the second column, its invoice number.

datafeed:

data,data,data

data:

PERHAPS_TITLE_ROW, START,SOMETHING_ELSE;

one_invoice,12312312,otherinformation_about_invoice,soemting_else;

other_invoice,44444443,some_more_information;

third_invoice, 111131211,more_info;

….

and then you work just with invoice number.

task 1) asks to compare each invoice number in within a batch, to that the a ascending order is respected.

task 2)asks to check if the invoices numbers are unfitting. which means what? different length? different datatype?

can you give some feedback on what i wrote? thanks.
