Inventory Items data entry excel template?

Posted on by Microsoft Employee

Is there a set template for excel for Inventory Items? I would like to be able to enter the data in excel over time, then copy and paste it into inventory items. Is this possible?

    Hi, if you whis we can develop an excel file that do all that you need without TI, just executing a store procedure.

    Basically is the excel file that you already have, and we just add the execution to the store procedure.

    If you're interested let me know.

    Good day -

    Thank you for posting your question on the forum.

    Typically when sites copy from a spreadsheet into a SL screen, it is to populate a grid, not the data fields as seen in the Inventory Item screen. To bring data into a screen like this we suggest using Transaction Import (TI).;view=detail&mid=34540E14DBC5AC819F5334540E14DBC5AC819F53&FORM=VIRE

    TI is a tool available in all versions of SL and without special registration/unlocking keys. TI can be found under the Administration menu group. Below is a link to a video on this tool. you can also find information on TI in the System Manager User Guide.  User Guides are typically installed on your SL application server in a folder similar to the following:

    ...\Microsoft Dynamics\SL\Applications\User Guides\SystemManager.pdf

    By using TI, you can update a comma delimited file (Excel) that can be manually updated, then import as needed into SL.

    I hope this is what you were looking for.

    Thank you
