There are six choices available in Plexis POS that allows for the importing of
your existing inventory. The easiest method is to have your inventory in an Excel
spreadsheet prior to sending the information to the Plexis POS inventory database.
All fields must be properly formatted in Excel as Generic Text.
FIELD NAMES and TYPES
Item Number: 1-20 Characters cell formatted as Generic Text
Description: 1-40 Characters cell formatted as Generic Text
List: Currency, 2 Decimals cell formatted as Generic Text
Cost: Currency, 2 Decimals cell formatted as Generic Text
Quantity: Up to 4 Decimals cell formatted as Generic Text
Dept: 1-4 Characters cell formatted as Generic Text
Arrange your Excel or Text file cells to match the order and position of the following import specification:
Item Number, Description, List Price, Cost Price, Quantity, Department
The Excel file must now be saved as MS-DOS CSV. Example: "Items.csv"
* Do NOT use Numeric Formatting in Excel, it will truncate
and remove leading and trailing zeros.
Import text Examples:
01234567890,WINDOW ARCHED LG,32.00,18.00,2.00,D21
If you have special characters such as commas within descriptions then enclose them in quotes.
01234567890,"WINDOW, ARCHED, LG",32.00,18.00,2.00,D21
As a general rule and to make importing seamless surround all field data with Double Quotes.
"01234567890","WINDOW, ARCHED, LG","32.00","18.00","2.00","D21"
