Company Import

Overview

This file allows the import of Company records from a standard Comma Delimited file into the RMS system.

 

You must be able to provide a CSV file in the format as indicated below. It may be necessary to seek technical advice in order to create your file in the format that RMS requires.

 

Sample File - Pending

Important InformationEdit section

  • The file to be imported must be in a comma delimited CSV format (Field Delimiter).
  • If a data field within this file contain commas, it should be surrounded with "double quotes" (Text Delimiter).
  • Line returns should be replaced with the pipe character '|'. (Usually found on the backslash key).
  • Microsoft Excel is able to save using a CSV format that should match these requirements.
  • RMS is able to determine whether the first record is a header record or not, thus it is not necessary to strip the header record (field names) prior to the import
  • Legacy Company ID's are saved to Company Spare Field 1 and used by subsequent imports to look up reservations.
