    Title:
    Create Nonlabor Costs ADF
    Summary:
    Nonlabor transactional raw cost field missing on ADF spreadsheet loader
    Content:

    Hello,

    We are trying to load nonlabor costs via ADF but there is no transaction raw cost field. It appears only quantity is available but that does not work for us. Has anyone else found this odd and discovered how to capture nonlabor via ADF? The template is apparently static and can't be edited.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

      Kevin,

      Have you tried using ADF "Create Costed or Accounted Transactions for Third-Party Applications"? As you are importing them as costed, try using this ADF.

      Thanks, Bala.

        Yes, Bala we did explore that option but Source and Document have no LOV's. I think there was a bug and not sure of a workaround if so.

        Thanks,

        Kevin

          Kevin,

          You need to define one transaction source to capture this cost and also associate a document to it. Once you define that, you will be able to pick the transaction source. While defining it, you would specify if you want to bring the transaction in as costed or accounted.

          Thanks, Bala.

            We tried to use the 3rd party template last week in 19A. We found document and source were not there due to lack of setup. In our discussion, we decided to use the Create Nonlabor template which does have them and load the hours and costs via 2 individual sheets. I don't want to open an SR given we are not using the 3rd party template (yet anyhow). We are in the beginning phases of setting up rules, mapping sets etc.

            Thanks,

            Kevin
