Importing Items into Transfers, Purchase Orders, and Invoices

As an alternative to hand-keying a large number of items onto purchase orders, transfers, and invoices, POSIM offers users the ability to directly import spreadsheets containing item information.

To access POSIM’s import tool:

From an invoice, transfer, or purchase order, access the tools menu in the upper-right corner and choose the Import option. This example uses a purchase order, but the same process can be followed for invoices and transfers.

  1. Highlight the column to be mapped.

  3. Use the Map button to map the column to its destination.
  4. Check the Skip First Line checkbox if the import file has column headers

Once all desired columns have been mapped, use the Import button to import all items onto the purchase order, invoice, or transfer.
