Additional Import Information

PDI Import will remove all fiscal stock files expect for those with a product group of GAS. Then the import utility will recreate a stock.dat with the new information from PDI.  When complete the import will remove the REPLACE.PDI file and move PDNLD to PDNLD.save in the /POLL directory.

In the event that the new stock file is not correct, the previous stock file can be restored by using pdipb_restore. Fiscal only backs up the last version of the price book.

Note: PDI import will not run if the REMOVE.PDI file is not located in the /POLL directory.

Log Files

The PDI Import will log to the pdiimp.log file and the PDI export will log to the pdiexp.log file.
