Any insight into the long term viability of CIM functionality? It seems like QAD promotes QXtend.
Is CIM Load functional in SE-2012?
Have you found that you need to convert the file when moving to Linux from Windows? That is, you have to run dos2unix?
Can you talk a little about the pros and cons of doing data validation in the Excel file? i.e. “1/1 – C8” to ensure x(8) format in the first field for the first frame? The data validation I’m mentioning is set in the “CIM-data Info” row.
Do you run QAD in batch mode before you use CIM deletion loads?
Are there any licensing requirements for CIM200.xla or EXPORT-2-CIM?
Can you CIM Load into EE Financial tables?
