Add an Update (Individual Records)
By selecting this option, you will be able to import new records, without replacing the ones you had imported before. It allows you to keep both and only update with new data. To activate this option, select Yes, and import the file.
Deactivate consolidation of application records
When importing applications, PDM
consolidates the fitments, and, for instance, if you are working in an excel file where all application values are the same, but the years, once imported, PDM
will group those applications into one, with a year range.
Deactivate consolidation of application records option allows you to see your application records organized in PDM, as you visualize them when working in the Excel file, by not grouping the fitments.
To activate this option, select Yes, and import the file.
Create new Item
Parts listed in other Segments than Items also get created.
When you import multiple segments to PDM, if there are items that do not yet exist in the file, the Item segment should be included for the PartNumbers to show in the tool.
The Create new Item option allows you to import new items that don't yet exist if they are within other segments in the file without having to import the Item segment.
