Update 24th Oct 2015: Data selection import tool is now available for Google Chrome as well. I’ve released the extension on Chrome Webstore. Following is the URL for the same: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jde-data-selection-import/njpneibpplcgghbjcbfhcdcfigjnaaha. Please click here to download the guide for installing in offline mode. Also download JDE Data Selection Import Tool chrome extension file, which will be required to carry out offline installation. Offline installations are generally required on systems where access to chrome webstore is forbidden.
As were are aware that JDE doesn’t allow us to mass add list of values in data selection, I have written this small addon which takes care of the problem.
Following is the guide to install the tool and get it running:
Step 1. Save following files on your hard drive
Rename .abc file to .bat before/after saving.
For e.g. in directory E:\NIMISH\JDEImport
Make a note of the directory path you are storing your files in.
Step 2. Edit JDEDataSelectionImport9.1.5.bat
Right click on the file and click on Edit.
Replace the directory path, E:\NIMISH\JDEImport with the path noted down earlier.
Step 3. Run JDEDataSelectionImport9.1.5.bat
Run the file JDEDataSelectionImport9.1.5.bat
This will create an entry in registry which will enable you to launch the tool in Internet Explorer.
Step 4. Turn off Protected Mode in Internet Explorer
If protected mode is turned on, it will block the script.
To turn off protect mode, go to Internet Options > Security Tab
Uncheck Enable Protected Mode for Internet, Local Intranet and Trusted Sites:
Step 5. Restart Internet Explorer
In order for the menu to reflect, close all instances of Internet Explorer and open again.
Step 6. Right click in the header menu on Data Selection page.
NOTE: It is necessary to launch the tool by right clicking in the header part of the page (as shown above) and clicking on “JDE Data Selection Import – 9.1.5”
Step 8. Wait for the values to be added then click OK
Step 9. Voila! Your Data Selection has been imported successfully.
