Import via new import definition
You want to import data into Profit, but you do not yet have an import definition. Add a new import definition; it describes the relationship between the data in the import file and the data in Profit. Then perform the import.
- Add import definition and import file
This is the default procedure for adding an import definition and importing the data from an import file.
- Enter separations between fields
When importing from an ASCII file with fixed lengths you must indicate where the divisions between the fields are.
- Import options for fields
The fields in an import file cannot always be copied to Profit directly. Usually this is because the fields to be imported have a different layout. Via the import options Profit can convert the fields to the correct layout.
- Configure VB script
If the data to be imported does not have the correct layout, you can edit it using VB Script.
- Record general data of an import definition
Set the name of the import definition and a number of general settings.
- Check validity of import definitions
Perform a technical check on the data to be imported.
