Lesson learnt : GP data is case sensitive.. Lower case data integrated to GP caused issue.

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Hi all,

          I would like to share my recent experience (nightmare) with GP. My requirement is to do a integration program - it has to import data from excel into GP 10.0 & create PO Receipts with Lot numbers. Integration is done using eConnectProgram was implemented successfully, testing done and everything working fine until a  day when user told that me that Item Stock Inquiry shows negative quantities for some of the items. ( I was really worried on how to fix this Inventory, I hardly slept that night.)

         I was checking every possible reason for a negative inventory like back dated entry/override quantity etc and it continued for  a couple of days, while checking suddenly at 2:30 AM, (the enlightenment moment !!) my instinct told me to  I verified all the integrated data. There I found for few transactions, user had entered the Site ID in smaller case which GP didn't recognize, Eg: User enter Site ID as "warehouse" instead of "WAREHOUSE" in the Excel sheet. After integration is done, GP didn't include the quantities of Site ID: "warehouse" for the Total stock calculation of a Site ID: "WAREHOUSE". When we manually entered Site ID in GP, it always shows in Caps , so there is no chance of making a mistake during manual entry.

          To correct the negative quantities , I updated the Site ID to Upper case in related tables and ran inventory reconcile. That solved my issue!

P.S : Always follow the correct case (Upper case/Lower case) for each field to be same as that of GP while doing a data import using a Custom program.

    Hi Siva,

    in Integration Manager you have option to make Upper Case even to in your excel file is in Lowercase.

    Select field and on left side Properties --> Case Conversation.--> Change it Upper Case it will ignore your excel LowerCase character.

    Thanks much
