Import .txt file on the form

Hi, I want to import a .txt file on click of a button on the sales order form. Sales order number will be auto generated & when i click on the import button it should fill up other fields of sales header. The data of the .txt file should be visible on the form once i click the import button. Thanks in advance, vikas

Use Quote to Sales Order routine. It will help you. Regards

Hi, The .txt file will contain all the other fields except Order No. When i click the import button on the sales order form it should populate the data on the form except the order no, because order no. exist since it’s a auto generated NO. please suggest Vikas

Vikas Copy and Paste this into the documentation section if it helps This code is not complete and is untested In code you will need to open the file. Read in each line identify the values and populate the fields. This is an example your txt file will need to be constructed so you can do this.
