Topic:   Importing data from other software

By: GuestPosted on: Apr 3 2022 at 02:05:45 PM
I have data from another mrp software that used SQL Server 2012 Express. My computer failed. I have backup copies of the database. The mrp software is no longer available and is not supported. I found a converter online that enables me to create .csv files from the old database file. Can I somehow import this data into miniMRP?

If you had a CSV file that lists the part number, description, onhand quantity etc of each inventory item then you should be able to import that.

Same thing with suppliers. Name, address, phone number, etc. in a single CSV. That should be importable too.

Do you have product parts lists BOMs as CSV files? These might be importable but we'd need to see what they look like - what the layout is. If you have that you could maybe email it and we'll take a look?

I have part numbers, descriptions, etc and supplier data. I can easily re-create the few BOMs. It sounds like I'm good. Thanks!

what is the process for importing an inventory list and BOMs from excel files? thanks

Importing your inventory.

In excel load up the sheet containing your inventory then, in excel, select the option to 'Save As' and save as CSV.

Then in MiniMRP look at the menu on the left of the program window. See the "Components" menu. Open that and you see the button for "Inventory Import CSV".

Same thing for importing suppliers, customers.
