Navision Implementer

1. Set up the Client Payroll Manager Import File Paths on the Import Export Layout using the same paths and file names as was setup in Client Payroll Manager in step number 7 above:

Access by selecting: Departments | Financial Management | Setup | Administration | Import Export Layout
Select New in the Home Tab and fill in the row
Click on Lines – Add information as needed


*Element No is the position on the file that comes from CPM.
2. Based on discussion with the CPM implementer, the Navision implementer will set up the Navision Import Export Layout table in a similar fashion as above. In the example the element numbers are mapped to NAV Tables, NAV Dimensions (Dim.) or the NAV Payroll Controls. The customer may only need one or two CPM Elements mapped to NAV Elements.
