3 Item Price/Cost Import

4 Importing Pricing Under the Inventory Utilities Menu is the option for “Item Price/Cost Import” Utilizing an Excel spreadsheet you can load in new manufacturer List Prices and Costs. Two options – Import pricing only (without Item Catalog records) – Import pricing and ALL parts (with Item Catalog Records)

5 Item Catalog records What are they? The Item Catalog contains all the parts that a manufacturer makes which you have never bought or sold. Why have them? Allows for parts to be created with one click of a button.

6 How do I load pricing/parts? 1.Obtain the manufacturer’s new price list (preferably in Excel format). 2.Open the list in Excel and modify the layout to match that which GE requires. a)The layouts are detailed in the Instructions on the import screen. b)There are two layouts: one for with and one for without Item Catalog records. c)Red columns are required fields. Black are optional. 3.Launch the Item Price List Import program, complete the selections, and run the Report.

7 Do I have to be an Excel Master? No. But let me give you some tips that may make the altering of the spreadsheet easier. 1.Price Lists never have Costs. So those have to be entered by you. Use a formula to quickly calculate your costs based off of List. 2.Do I have to put UOM’s, Product Groups, Pricing Groups, etc on each of the 10,000+ parts? Yes, but use the black square to apply the desired codes to all parts in under a second.
