The Excel file must not have Column Headers (data should start in Row #1). Required fields must be provided. Optional fields can be provided but may be left blank.
A sample Excel file is shown below:
Columns must be in the position specified in the Excel Map section (i.e. Item Number must always be in Column B).
|A||MO Number||NO||If no MO Number is provided, the next MO Number generated by MFG will be used, or if WilloWare’s MO Doc Types is registered, it will generate an MO Number based on the selected MO Doc Type.
If neither of the above methods results in a new MO Number, the utility will create it by appending “M” to a date/time stamp (MMDDYYYhhmmss).
MO Number must not already exist in GP.
MO Number will be truncated at 30-characters and converted to upper case.
|B||Item Number||YES||ItemNumber will be truncated at 30-characters and converted to upper case. It must exist in GP.|
|C||Quantity||YES||Cannot be negative, and must not have more decimal places than is allowed by the Item’s Quantity Decimals setting.|
|D||Due Date||YES||Due Date cannot be blank, and must have one of the following formats:
MM/DD/YYYY or YYYY-MM-DD
|E||Scheduling Preference||NO||Scheduling Preference will be truncated at 20-characters. If provided in the file, it must exist in GP, and, it takes precedence over the other sources for Scheduling Preference.
A Scheduling Preference can also be entered on the MOGen window. If present, it will be used when SchedPref is not provided in the import. Lastly, MOGen will use the Default Scheduling Preference from MFG Setup if no other Scheduling Preference is provided.
Scheduling Preference is used to set the Draw From and Post To Sites on the MO, and the Scheduling Method (forward or backward).
|F||Routing Name||NO||Routing Name will be truncated at 30-characters and converted to upper case. If provided, it must exist in GP.
If not provided, the Item’s Primary Routing will be used.
|G||BOM Type||NO||If not provided the Item’s MFG BOM will be used.|
|H||BOM Name||NO||If BOMType = 3 (ARCH BOM) or 4 (CONFIG BOM), a BOMName must be provided. The BOM must exist in GP.
BOM Name will be truncated at 15-characters and converted to upper case.
|I||Description||NO||If no Description is provided in the import, the MO Description from the MOGen window will be used.|
|J||SOP Type||NO||Integer: 2 = Order, 3 = Invoice, 5 = Backorder. These are the only allowed values.|
|K||SOP Number||NO||SOP Number will be truncated at 20-characters and converted to upper case.
