Exporting water meter route from itron FCS to act!

Hi evreyone!

 

Got a bug here,

 

I'm exporting a .dat file that contains my route and water meter reading.

 

 

I'm importing this file with an addons that manage my route, but the readings dont appear in my custum readings table..

 

I will be lucky if any user of itron FCS system are using act like me on this forum!

 

Thank you

Hi Oliver,

 

I cannot say i have seen this done before, however has it worked in the past via the addon? or is their anyway to export the file into a compatible format that Act would be able to import the data into?

I have to make an assumption here but it sounds like the addon created a custom table in the ACT! database for the route information. I'm also assuming that you are using the ACT! import to import to the route information. If that's the case, the ACT! import won;t import to the custom table. The addon company may provide a way to do the import. Another option would be to use OakMerge, a third party importer for ACT! that will import to custom tables.

Unless there is an addon available that can import the .DAT file into Act. It maybe easier to look at converting the .DAT into .CSV/.XLS(X)

 

A google search gives these results.
