Importing Data from ADP DMS
ADP DMS users: A sample ADP import configuration is included within DeskLot. It is available under the "Data Transfer" menu and is named "SAMPLE: ADP Comma Delimited Import w/ Option Code/Text Conversions". If you are running an older version of DeskLot which does not include this configuration, you may download a new ImportExport.mdb file from http://www.desklot.com/downloads/ImportExport.mdb. WARNING: If you have already configured Data Transfer Configurations you do not want to lose, do NOT overwrite your existing file with the new one but rather send us your existing ImportExport.mdb file via email and we will manually import the ADP configuration for you. To build a ASCSII Comma Delimited file from ADP for importing your inventory into DeskLot. Build a RPG report and save the full report. Then use the RXP function to parse the file into a CSV (comma seperated values) text file. The file should look something like this: YEAR,MAKE...,MODEL..,#CYL,TRANS,BODY...,COLOR,INT-COLOR,STOCK-NO.,SERIAL,MILEAGE,OPTIONS,LIST,STICKER 2004,NISS,MAXI,6,AUTO,SL,SILVER,BLACK,F17377,1N4BA41E84C817377,8,6CY AUT PWN PLK PMI STE CAS CDP LEA PDS LWW AAW ALB AIR ACC RKE DAB LVM DIC OTD FGL CRU DHS ZOH HAI,29700, 2004,NISS,MAXI,6,AUTO,SL,SILVER,BLACK,F18549,1N4BA41E54C818549,298,6CY AUT PWN PLK PMI STE CAS CDP CDC LEA LWW TWH WMC PMR AAW ALB AIR RKE DAB LVM DIC OTD CRU ALM DHS ZOH,29700, 2003,MITS,LAN,4,AUTO,ES,BLUE,GRAY,W01569,JA3AJ26EX3U001569,19259,4CY AUT PWN PLK PMI STE CDP CLT TWH AIR DAB VMS,12650,12650 2003,NISS,ALTI,4,AUTO,2.5-S,PEWTER,TAN,F63192,1N4AL11D13C270432,18,4CY AUT PWN PLK PMI STE CDP CLT TWH WMC AIR RKE DAB VMS CRU ALM,20136, 2003,NISS,ALTI,4,AUTO,CONV,PEWTER,BLACK,F67201,1N4AL11D03C267201,15,4CY AUT PWN PLK PMI STE CDP CLT PDS LWW TWH WMC PMR AAW AIR RKE DAB LVM DIC OTD FGL CRU,22933, 2003,NISS,ALTI,4,AUTO,2.5-S,BLACK,GRAY,F68441,1N4AL11D33C268441,18,4CY AUT PWN PLK PMI STE CDP CLT LWW TWH WMC AIR RKE DAB VMS CRU,20175, 2003,NISS,ALTI,4,AUTO,CONV,BLACK,GRAY,F71862,1N4AL11E83C271862,22,4CY AUT PWN PLK PMI STE CDP CLT PDS LWW TWH WMC AAW ALB AIR RKE DAB LVM OTD FGL CRU ALM,22545, 2003,NISS,ALTI,4,AUTO,CONV,WHITE,BLACK,F72344,1N4AL11E23C272344,14,4CY AUT PWN PLK PMI STE CDP CLT PDS LWW TWH WMC AAW ALB AIR RKE DAB LVM OTD FGL CRU ALM,22545,0 In DeskLot 1.5.89 or above, a sample Data Transfer Configuration is included for importing a ADP exported CSV file (as mentioned at the beginning of this document).
