FAQ

  • Simplified Loader templates work independently of ADFdi plugin. Users don’t need to install ADFdi plugin on their machine for Simplified Loader templates to work.

  • Simplified Loader templates currently do not support SSO login. To use Simplified Loader templates, user account needs to have non-SSO (local user) login. System Administrators can enable non-SSO login for the user by resetting user password using Security Console.

  • Email details of the new DFF to Support@SimplifiedLoader.com. We will update the template with new DFF and email you the revised template.

  • Values in the Lookup sheet are used when entering data in the DataSheet. Follow steps below to use Lookup value in DataSheet

    1. In DataSheet, double-click on the cell where you want to make use of a lookup table
    2. Lookup sheet will open with a form to search relevant values
    3. Enter search criteria and press the “Filter (Ent)” button. This will filter records in the Lookup table
    4. Once you are satisfied with the search results, close the dialog box by clicking the “Close (Esc)” button
    5. Double-click on the value that you want to use
    6. Lookup value gets copied to the DataSheet
  • In some cases, Fusion ERP returns ID of the value instead of the actual field value. To see value for the ID, store ID and Value fields in Lookup sheet and use VLOOKUP formula in DataSheet.

    NOTE: You will need SQL knowledge to retrieve ID and Values from Fusion ERP.

  • The following steps will guide you through the setup of a new lookup column:

    1. In the Lookup sheet, insert a new column(s) to store lookup values that you want to use. For example: Supplier Name, Supplier Type, City.
    2. In the About sheet, unhide columns “Lookup Column (Primary)” and “Lookup Column (Secondary)”, these are columns E & F in the About sheet. In “Lookup Column (Primary)” enter column name of the lookup column whose value you want to select and return to the DataSheet. Column names entered in DataSheet must be exactly same as defined in Lookup sheet. You cannot specify more than one primary column. For example: Supplier.Supplier Name. In this example Supplier is the lookup section name entered in row 1 of Lookup sheet, and Supplier Name is lookup field name entered in row 3 of Lookup sheet.
    3. In the About sheet, in “Lookup Columns (Supporting)” enter field names that would help you search the value in the lookup table. The columns in the supporting field get displayed in “Filter Lookup value” dialog box. Example: Supplier.Supplier Type; Supplier.City.
      NOTE: Use a semi-colon as a separator between columns.
    4. To default an existing value from DataSheet into “Filter Lookup value” form, simply enter DataSheet field name in square brackets. Example: Supplier.Supplier Type [Supplier Type]; Supplier.City [City]. Entering DataSheet field name will automatically look for the value in the Supplier Type column in DataSheet and filter data in Lookup sheet.
    5. Save the workbook.
    6. The user can now use Lookup functionality from the DataSheet.
