Data Selection – Literal Import List of Values Tool – JDE 9.1.5 | JDE 9.2

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

ImportValueList.htm

JDEDataSelectionImportTool9.1.5.abc

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:

  1. Hi,

    Nothing happens when I click. I did the same as the pictures show in Chrome App Store. Do you know what it can be?

    -Win7
    -PopUps Alowed
    -No AddBlock
    -Chrome

    • Hi Tarcio

      Please check if you are on the “list of values” tab.

      Next make sure you have run the batch file and the path mentioned in the file points to a valid location. If the path mentioned in .bat file is incorrect, pop up won’t launch. Correct the path and it should work fine.

      Thanks & Regards
