Import invoice definitions

You can export invoice definitions and then import them again.

This can be useful, for example if you want to export one or more invoice definitions, optimize them in a test system, and then re-import them into your production system. However, it is important to note, in this case, that database settings (master data, for example) must be similar for both systems. If you mix different formats, errors will occur or definitions will be duplicated.

Note This procedure is different from importing invoice profiles and associated objects. In this procedure, only invoice definitions are imported. However, the entire invoice profile is included in the file for validation purposes.
  1. Using Manager, click the Invoice definitions button. The Invoice definitions list is displayed.
  2. Right-click the Invoice definitions list and select Import.
  3. Adjust the settings in the Import invoice definitions dialog.

    If the Code page for Unicode upgrade setting is visible, select the code page of the ANSI data that the EHIX file (replaces old EHI file) contains.

  4. Click Import. The invoice definitions are imported to the invoice profile with the same name as the profile they were exported from. If an invoice profile with that name does not exist, it is automatically created from the file you imported.
