Change contacts (UpdateConnector KnContact)

UpdateConnector to change contacts at organisations.

UpdateConnector name: KnContact

Note: 

You can use this UpdateConnector to add or change one contact person. You cannot add/change multiple contact persons at the same time!

If you want to add contacts, delivery addresses and departments for an organisation, you use the 'KnOrganisation' UpdateConnector.

Note: 

You can retrieve a list of fields to be supplied for each UpdateConnector and generate an XML example. See the description for AFAS Online or for a local installation.

UPDATE

Change contact and delivery addresses

Download an XML example file (change delivery address)

INSERT (only in the address)

Change the address of contacts by adding a new address line with a new start date.

Not possible with the connector:

  • Add or delete contacts, delivery addresses, departments.

Points of attention:

  • When you change a person, you enter the organisation code and the person code.
  • You cannot delete the contacts with the UpdateConnector, but you can block them.

P.O. Box address

Deliver the following fields for a P.O. Box address:

  • PbAd (Postbus): 1
  • NmNr (Huisnummer): The P.O. Box number

Deliver the postal code and city as well.

Addresses

  • In an address, you must always enter the country code in the 'CoId' field.
  • Deliver the fields that are needed for a complete address (this depends on the properties of the country code).
  • For the first address (in practice, for a new record), you do not need to deliver a start date in the 'BeginDate' field. If an address already exists, use 'BeginDate' to indicate the effective date of the address change.
  • If the 'ResZip' field has the value 'True', the system looks up the city for the postal code entered. In this case, you do in fact still need to enter a city in the 'Rs' field. If the system cannot find a city for the postal code entered, it uses the value entered in 'Rs' for the city.
  • You can change delivery addresses. The existing delivery address is retrieved using two fields:

    BcCoOga: Organisation number

    ExAd: Name of the delivery address
