Format Specifications:


Row 1 - Compulsory fields -> Must have value or else the record will not go into Device.
Cell 1A Stock Code -> Item code maximum number of characters is 30, so far the data in EMP seems ok
Cell 1B BarCode [Default to '0000'] -> Every item from EMP must have an EanCode else the record will not go in
Cell 1C Category [Default to 'N']
Cell 1D Description [Default to 'N'] -> Data in EMP Description could be too long, do not use.  Just default it to 'N'
Cell 1E Location 1(Qty) [Default to 1] -> Currently no location by quantity info on Item Listing   Just default it to 1
Cell 1F Location 2(Qty) [Default to 1] -> Currently no location by quantity info on Item Listing   Just default it to 1
Cell 1G Location 3(Qty) [Default to 1] -> Currently no location by quantity info on Item Listing   Just default it to 1

18. Notice that Category, Description, Location1, Location2, Location3 for all the rows has not been defaulted to any value. These columns has to be defaulted to a value for the import to work as mentioned in Format Specification section in Step 8.

19. "Copy" the default value for Category, Description, Location1, Location2, Location3 as shown below.



20. Paste the default values into the other rows using "Edit" menu -> "Paste".
