Work Order Import Dialog
This dialog lets you import previously defined work orders to the active project. This option is designed so work orders created in SAP or other external databases can be exported into the current project.
|Look in fields||In this drop down list you can search using the work order attributes displayed below. Select an option from the list, or use the All Fields option:|
|Search Filter||Enter a phrase or partial phrase in the filter field and click the search icon to narrow the search results or leave the field blank to display all of the results.|
|Select Work Orders||The top grid displays the work orders found using the
search option. To import a work order you can either double-click on the work
order or right-click and select
Import. Multiple orders can be selected by
pressing the <Crtl> button while selecting them.
The selected work orders will be added to the bottom grid. When you select OK, these work orders will be imported and displayed in the Work Order Manager.
Work Order Databases
Substation includes a sample script file which creates a sample database (SubstationDataExchange) with existing work orders. To add the database, you will need to open and execute the script in the SQL Management Studio. Click the link below for the procedure for this.
The sample database and script file is provided as a template which can be either modified to meet your company needs, or used as an example for creating a unique script file to map fields from your own SAP work order database.
