In App Center → Datanorm you will find an application with the help of which it is possible to import data in DATANORM format. Files of Datanorm versions 4 and 5 can be imported. The module can specifically import articles, purchase and sales prices.
The file format allows each line to be a unit of information. The letter at the beginning of the line indicates what kind of information it is. The module is still under construction, therefore not all line types can be processed at the moment. We welcome your suggestions on what is still missing!
The following line types can be processed:
- V - leading record
- A - main record 1 (article record A)
- B - main record 2 (article record B)
- P - price change rate
- D - dimension record
- T - long text record
- E - Insertion text record (exists only in version 4)
The module's interface is currently used to upload the files (usually called DATANORM.001, DATANORM.002,... and DATPREIS.001, DATPREIS.002,...) are uploaded. The actual processing is then done asynchronously in the background via cronjobs.
During the import it is basic that a file with A-types is imported. The order in which files are uploaded does not matter, the app always tries to import A-types first.
