Hi Bonnie,

About 6 years ago, we started down the path of implementing Infor's 'Workflow for System i' (WFi) product to gather input for LX master data from the designated staff (I believe this product came with our Infor upgrade-to-LX package). We did not get very far with it; but in all fairness we didn't spent much time on it. I believe WFi works w/ a combination of Webtop, Workspace, and LX exit points (we still use mostly 5250 screens) ... Not sure if WFi is still an option, but may be worth a call or some web searches ... FYI.

***CAUTION: EXTERNAL MESSAGE***

Thanks everyone
I've used the spreadsheet loading tools in the past. They are great for mass loading.
We're looking more for a 'one-off' interactive tool to be used if/when a new item is added that will segregate the data owners and allow us to manage progress.
Considered IDF and still may try that route.
Hoping to find a 'ready-made' interactive tool.

Really appreciate all the feedback

I wasn't involved in the project but we did use this product to help minimize regular LX screens to fit just the fields we needed on the small
5250 screens on hand held scanners.

I know of a tool that uses data from Excel to run thru BPCS screens. It actually uses the BPCS screens so any existing BPCS security is applied.

For any who don't already know, LX 8.4 has an IDF front end for loading some of the master files (item, customer, vendor & cost masters) and they will be expanding the included master files in future releases. IDF provides lots of configurability and security options.

Admittedly, this doesn't provide any help for an older release but is something to keep in mind before investing a lot of time and money in another solution if an upgrade could be on the horizon.

solution

< vendor >

Lickety-Split software transports Excel spreadsheet data into BPCS/ERP LX screens:
http://www.unbeatenpath.com/software/dataentry/Lickety-Split.pdf

The data load process is performed by interactively executing the green screen program that would otherwise be employed to manually keypunch that same data. Therefore, the same security enforced by the BPCS program is automatically observed by Lickety-Split.

Edit checking in the BPCS program is also performed. If an edit check error is found on any record in the Excel spreadsheet, Lickety-Split captures the error message displayed on the green screen and writes it into the spreadsheet on that row. It then skips the problem row and continues to subsequent rows of the spreadsheet.
After the upload is done, you can search the Excel spreadsheet for error messages, fix the problems, and then re-transport those fixed rows back up into BPCS/ERP LX.

You can apply it to upload an entire database or you can use it to maintain a database or do things like upload cycle counts or standard cost updates.
It even allows header/detail type uploads.

It's lightning fast. People who see the demo say "it's slick."
This is the tool Jason Schemmel referred to in his note earlier this morning.
