Upload Sales Orders
Uploads sales orders into one or more Exact Online companies. An Excel sheet with a pre-defined format is used as the source of the sales orders.
The limit of approximately 1 million rows is considerably larger than the Exact Online default. This app will help you import large volumes of sales orders across multiple companies in one go.
However, take note that each individual upload must be completed within 3 minutes.
Each line in Excel represents a sales order lines, which is grouped into sales orders by the journal code and account code.
The actual internal uploads take place in many small parts to circumvent limits in the Exact Online APIs.

The Excel workbook must contain a worksheet with the name 'Sales Order Lines'. The contents of the first row are ignored to leave space for column headings.
The columns from left to right are:
•Exact Online company's division code (optional).
The following checks are performed before loading the data into the Exact Online companies:
•The Exact Online company's division codes must all refer to an active company the user has access to (gmr006).
•The journal codes must refer to existing journals in the companies (gmr007).
•The account codes must refer to existing accounts in the companies (gmr008).
•The item codes must refer to existing items in the companies (gmr010).
The output is an Excel workbook with the following worksheets:
•Overview of the data imported.
•Results, with one row per fragment uploaded to Exact Online.
The results include a column with XML to manually correct and re-load individual failed sales orders.
There are no limits on the number of records that can be uploaded in one upload. However, Excel poses a limit of 1 million rows per worksheet.
