We have created an Excel template to make it easier to add parts and part purchases into the JDM Premier Plus without having to do data entry. If your vendor can send you the order as an Excel spreadsheet then be sure to make sure the columns match our template before you import. The template is available to download on the Import Data form under Preferences.
The Import will create new part categories, new vendors and new parts if they do not already exist. If a Part already exists then the import will add the purchase to the part.
Part Purchase Excel Template
Click on the link to download the template and save it to a folder on your computer. Compare your spreadsheet to the template. Please be sure that the column names and order is the same.
Do not enter any text in fields that are $ or numbers. There should be data in all required fields (marked in red).
