To re-import a modified Excel workbook, select the Import Material option.

Select the only complete check box if only complete MTRs will be imported. If this check box is selected, any line rejected due to an error will cause the entire file to be rejected. If this check box is not selected, only incorrect lines are rejected.

The MTR can only be re-loaded if it is not posted and if the MTR type is 'Regular.' An Excel workbook must contain no more than one MTR. The import job creates a log file that shows the Excel line number for rejected, updated, or inserted lines and in the case of rejection, the reason why the line was rejected.

If you have selected the Import Material option, click the Upload button to upload the Excel workbook to the application server. Then click Start to launch the MTR import.

  • or not enough onhand quantity is available.

Lines are rejected if no new warehouse, new location, and new status are entered, or if the entered new warehouse, new location, or new status does not exist.
