AR Invoice batch Accpac Plus (AR Version 6.5A)

AR Invoice batch Accpac Plus (AR Version 6.5A)

AR Invoice batch Accpac Plus (AR Version 6.5A)

(OP)
Hi,
We are still running Accpac Plus and no planning to upgrade for a while.
We have custom made invoicing system (MS Access/Visual Basic) and manually entering printed invoices into Accpac AR like:
- type 'Invoice'
- customer no
- document no (invoice no)
- date
- reference (invoice no)
- description (customer name)
G/L invoice ditribution
- subtotal (one revenue account)
- tax (one tax account)
I am wondering if would be possible to export selected invoices from our invoicing system (custom made, full access, can be modified) into proper format recognized by Accpac AR module (ARIBATCH file).
I need to know the format of the invoice batch file (files) so it can be imported directly without manual data entry.
Any help, please?

RE: AR Invoice batch Accpac Plus (AR Version 6.5A)

That's going a long way back in time, perhaps older than dirt itself.

You should be able to export invoice data from AR and then use that for the layout to import. You'll probably need to experiment a little.

Jay might be able to offer something more concrete.

Thanks, I tried that (export invoice data from AR) but there isn't such option sad
I tried to take a look at files created after batch entered before posting but it didn't make much sense at the first look (probably would need to check with a hex editor?)

No export from Plus, you need to get the import file layout from either the user manual or F1 help.

Yeah forget about looking at files, they are proprietary ISAM files, not much to see there.
