If your total in excel don't match the totals and row count in powerlink check the custom relationships you have, any key info on the objects and the SQL that is run.

Powerlink will not show duplicate keys. When you have a many to 1 relationship define (translated to left join in SQL) that actually works out to more than one record in your object. The totals in powerlink will show from these record, but they won't be exported.

If you run SQL monitor and paste the SQL into another program (ie I Series Navigator Run SQL Scripts) you can see these extra records. If a relationship is causing the problems then fix that. Also if you just you the fields in your view from the primary object is your row count correct?

Finally, I have an open incident for broadcast to a list view with column totals that doesn't work right. If this is the case let me know and I can work through it with you. My incident has been open since March so I don't think support is ever going to fix it.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Exporting data from PowerLink to Excel 2007

Hello All.

I have this weird problem. I cannot get a large record set of data to export correctly into Excel

from powerlink.

It is leaving out records in the exported text file.

We are trying to export bookings data to Excel and the totals

are not matching up. Also the row count is off so we know that it is skipping records.

I have up'ed on the Limit clipboard export to first K Chars, setting to the max. But that didn't help.

Does anyone have any tricks that work? We are at R7.8 .


And p..s. Please don't flood this tread with a bunch of Marketing for Excel

linked financial type appl's.
