For importing replenishment data, you require an import format that is configured with the database tableImport Replenishment.
The example below compares the data content of a file from a spreadsheet software (here, e.g., an Excel file prior to its conversion to a CSV or TXT file) with the import format for replenishment data:
Explanatory Notes to the Example
Column A of the Excel spreadsheet (Product Search Key) is in the first place, ergo the corresponding format field is given the Start No. 1. Consequently, the format field for Column B receives the Start No. 2 etc. The order (SeqNo) of the format fields is therefore irrelevant.
Note: metasfresh does not expect any column names in the import file. Simply the position of the column must correspond to the start number.
The Name of the format field may be chosen freely and does not have to coincide with the column name in the import file.
The Column of the format field specifies where metasfresh shall transfer the content of the column from the import file.
The Data Type specifies whether the type of the import data is, e.g., a String or a Number.
