I finally finished the data migration portion of the F100 Hands-On Financials (V4.0) course. Data migration is my least favorite portion of any implementation because:
- I think it’s boring
- It always takes much longer than you think it will
It took me a few late nights to finally get through this. There was some bad data in some of the import files that I had to cleanup in order for the import to go through successfully. When you import AP and AR open bills/invoices, the system automatically makes a journal entry which you then manually have to enter a reversing entry for. Also, the dollar amount of the imported items was $.02 different than what was in the Excel file which must have been due to rounding. I’m assuming that Acumatica put the errors in the import files intentionally so I could get some practice.
The next step is to schedule an appointment with an Acumatica instructor in order to review the setup configuration and data that I imported into the test company on my laptop. I sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting an appointment. We’ll see how long it takes for a response.
