To find which Access group you have access rights from, you have to look in System > Register > Persons by opening your personal record.

HansaWorld Books 6.3

For HansaWorld Books 6.3 to export registers you have to go to the System module and for:

  • AcVc - System data/Accounts
  • AccVc - Registers (period)
  • To export Objects - please contact your partner

EXAMPLE 

To create report  " Item Statistics By Customer And Object"  you have to export data from Sales ledger module that builds Invoices Data cube in Flex.bi and is based on Invoice data. According to list,  you have to export : 

  • Base currency setting ( BaseCurBlock)
  • Invoices, (IVVc) 
  • Items (Invc)
  • Customers (CUVc)
  • Customer categories (CCatVc)
  • Contacts (UserVc),
  • Object types (OTVc)

  • You can also export Item Classifications (DIVc) if you think you might need them in reports somewhere. But you can add them also later.
  • Transactions - Trvc
  • Objects  - OTVc
  • Object Types  - ObjVc
  • Accounts  -  ActVc

Keep in mind that HansaWorld Module = Data cube in Flex.bi language.

2. Upload register files to flex.bi

a) For automated exports / imports with HAL

If you are using automated exports / import where files are sent to server by HAL package timed events, you do not have to upload files - they will show in Source files section automatically, just check if they show up in Source files and are recognized as HansaWorld format. Then move to Source application section below. 

If some of register files are missing,  not recognized or empty, please go to - Automated export setup with flex.bi provided HAL package.

b) For manual file export / import

In the flex.bi interface you have to find the tab Source Data > Source Files and upload the register files you prepared previously. If files after upload are recognized as HansaWorld files then you will see the HansaWorld logo appear under each file name. Result table should look like this or similar :

If your file is not recognized as a HansaWorld file then:

  • Make sure the file contains any data at all.
  • Try to re-export the data from HansaWorld again and allow some time for the new file to be populated with data, because exporting big files (several megabytes) can cause the files to appear as empty while they are being populated by data

3. Set up HansaWorld source application

1. Add new Source Application 

You can setup application in Source Data > Source Applications tab by selecting "Add new Source Application" button.

2. Select HansaWorld application 

3. Continue

4. Select your data

For more information about the cubes and dimensions visit the page on: What properties and measures are available for HansaWorld cubes?

If you want to import Extra dimensions (Object typesCustomer classes, Item classes, Location classes, Item Varieties), click on section Extra Dimensions and select, which Extra Dimensions you need. 
 


If your file is not recognized as a HansaWorld file then:

  • Make sure the file contains any data at all.

  • Try to re-export the data from HansaWorld again and allow some time for the new file to be populated with data, because exporting big files (several megabytes) can cause the files to appear as empty while they are being populated by data

5. Import application

Go back to Source Application tab and press Import.


4. Automate exports with HAL (Optional)

Requirements

  1. HAL License
  2. Customized halcust/hobcust files 

For HAL license owners we provide HAL code package that configures automatic exports for chosen data and period. Please contact us or your local Hansaworld partner for more info.

The Process

  1. Add the halcust/hobcust package to your server 

    (this should be done by the administrator or the programmer)

  2. (Optional) - Create package keys

  3. Add additional hal rules 

    (Sample - halrulesvc.txt). After adding Hal rules make sure to restart your StandardERP (HansaWorld) client.

  4. Go to Technics - Settings - Timed Operations

    • Add the funcition burti_TimedEvents to background tasks and 90 seconds to run:


  5. Go to System - Settings - Timed events and add the functionality you want to execute. 

    The provided timed events and export packaged can differ from the standard functionality provided from StandardERP (or HansaWorld) by letting you execute multiple events and defining automated export paths.


    • (Optional) - Sample Timed Events register TimedEventVc.txt. Contact us or your local flex.bi consultants, if you need help with customising the register for your needs.

  6. Editing Timed Events

    There are two types of export events - "Full register export" and "Customized register export". The first should usually be used only daily/weekly/monthly preferably during off-times. The second (customized) - should be used for exports you need much more often, e.g. - exporting every 10 minutes any transactions made during current day.
     
    1. ExportEverythingEn - full export 
      1.  Fill in the standard fields as needed (Select Maintenance as routine type)

      2. In the matrix add three lines

        1. AccStr - "Register Code"

        2. ObjStr - "Destination" 

        3. Media - 2 


        4. Use this export for bigger files which could affect your systems workload

    2. ExportPartialEn - customized export
      1. Fill in the standard fields as needed (Select Maintenance as routine type)

      2. In the matrix add 6 (or less) lines

        1. flags[0]:
          0 - filename.extension

          1 - filename_register_datetime.extension

          2 - filename_monthyear.extension

          3 - filename_month_year.extension (Recommended)

        2. ArtMode - 0 to 15

          0 - NL Transactions, 1 - Sales Invoices etc., 13 - Quotations, 14 - Item History, 15 - POS Invoices

        3. ObjStr - "Destination"

        4. sStartDate - "Starting date" - can be used with hal language date functions (CurMonthStart , Date etc.)

        5. sEndDate - "Ending date" - can be used with hal language date functions

        6. Media - 2 

        This will export your files to requested destination path.

    3. Partial export for previous month (ExportPartialEn)
      If you want to replace data of previous month, you can do it with Timed Events as well. In this case you have to add 2 more lines.

      1. Fill in the standard fields as needed (Select Maintenance as routine type)
      2. In the matrix add 8 lines
        1. flags[0]:
          0 - filename.extension

          1 - filename_register_datetime.extension

          2 - filename_month_year.extension

          3 - filename_monthyear.extension (Recommended)

        2. ArtMode - 0 to 15

          0 - NL Transactions, 1 - Sales Invoices etc., 13 - Quotations, 14 - Item History, 15 - POS Invoices

        3. ObjStr - "Destination"

        4. $AdjMonth - set the month adjacent to current month (-1 for previous month, -2 for two month ago etc.)
        5. sStartDate - AdjMonthStart - Start of the adjacent month

        6. $AdjMonth - set the month adjacent to current month (-1 for previous month, -2 for two month ago etc.)
        7. sEndDate - AdjMonthEnd - End of the adjacent month

        8. Media - 2
