Import Purchase Orders

Overview

The GoldFinch Import Purchase Order routine is used to upload and validate the raw CSV data so that the new Purchase Orders can be correctly created in GoldFinch. 

Prepare Purchase Orders Template

The Import Purchase Order template will be used to import both GF Purchase Orders and Purchase Lines. Sample data is available on the template for you to use as a guide.

Populate the template with the Purchase Order and Line data that will be imported into GoldFinch.
