Import Customer Equipment Requirements
Below are the requirements for Importing an Equipment list file.

A TXT file with the same format as below will import into the SIS equipment list as well as the CSV file.

Example: customer model and product Id, the arrangement will be after the final comma. DO NOT
INCLUDE A COMMA IN THE DATA, it is used to separate the data records. Pound sign (#) works OK to
designate a customer equipment number but is not required. Both customer equipment entry types can
be mixed. The example below would have only one product ID / Serial Number entry for each machine
or engine.
797B #34540,JSM00120,
325C #34555,BFE00325,

Example customer name and equipment - multiple products are associated with a customer name.

This option can be used when a user has a large equipment list that needs to be saved and shared
between multiple users. Users can create .CSV/.TXT type files ( E.g.: myEquipmentList.csv) and save
the information in following format and use them as an import source.

Import Customer Equipment Requirements

Import File Format:
Recommended format for the data is as follows. Records found to have invalid format or
data will be highlighted in red and reported as invalid records. The users will have the option
to select desired records from the valid list.

Customer Name ( max. 56 Characters), Serial Number or Prefix(max. 8 Characters),
Arrangement Number (max. 8 characters). Note that the commas are used to separate the
fields and hence should be carefully used. (E.g.: ABC Equipment Inc,5EK00001,1A1135)
Customer Name is mandatory along with either Serial Number or Arrangement Number or
both. Commas are not recommended as part of Customer Names( E.g. Caterpillar Inc.,)
Customer record(s) that have only a Serial Number can leave the optional Arrangement
Number empty with comma (E.g.: ABC Machinery Inc, 5EK00001, )
Customer record(s) that have only an Arrangement Number can leave the optional Serial
Number field empty with comma (E.g.: ABC Machinery Inc, ,1A1135 )
Maximum file size that can be imported at a time is 0.5 MB (approximately, this can hold up
to 6,000 records). If for some reason, the file size exceeds the 0.5 MB limit, it is
recommended to break the data into more than one file and import each file separately.
