Template Structure for Static Data

The template must have tag ‘Sage50asset’ in cell A1 to instruct PostTrans that we are interested in Sage 50 Assets, and that the sheet is a PostTrans Template.  Pressing Import or Extract on a blank sheet will either open an existing example or create basic template for you to customise.

Row 1 contains a series of tags, which denote to PostTrans the data to be read/written in each column. These tags, and data columns can be rearranged to suit your needs, and the tags are added using the Tags button. See on-line Training   Deleting the Tag name, in the cell, from this row removes the Sage 50 mapping.   Table of Assets Tags

Hovering over these tags, in row 1, will show a comment which explains the tags purpose, data type and any other useful details.

Common Features

In-Cell Searching

Any Tag ending with ^ with have a in-cell search facility to look up associated values.  Use SPACE + TAB to see all values, or SPACE and TEXT to perform a text search on description. These are returned to the cell as "CODE, DESCRIPTION".  PostTrans only uses the CODE and ignores the comma and anything after it, thus data from a field would only need the CODE part of the data if from an external imported file.  

In-cell Searching can be turned off by removing the ^ from the end of the tag name, or name in first line of comment (Header cells) to disable in-cell searching for a single column, or header cell.  All in-cell searching can be turned off in SetupIn-cell searching.

Extracting the Data

The data extracted using the Extract button can be filtered, by entering criteria in row 2. Hover over cell A2 for instructions. Extracting Data

Amending Assets Data

Having extracted data, the user can now simply edit the Assets in Microsoft Excel, before re-importing it back into Sage 50. 

PostTrans uses the tagged column AsCRC to detect changes in rows.  Therefore, only records/rows which have changed since extraction are updated.  If you add or delete a tagged column, PostTrans will treat ALL rows as having changed, and thus ALL records will be updated on next Import.

Importing the Data

Simply press the Import button to validate and import the data into Sage 50.  PostTrans will read the Header cells and then process the rows of data until AsCode column contains no data. The Sage Company imported into can be set in the Setup window.

PostTrans ONLY edits those fields listed on the sheet when importing, thus any existing values, on a record, are unaffected.   New records may have default values for certain fields.

File Import Button

This can be enabled in Setup to easily import cvs, or fixed length files, into sheet for importation.   Formula can also be added, or macros/VBA to manipulate this data before importation.   Import from CSV file.


Any values and associated codes will be invalid during import.   The cursor will be moved to highlight any problems in data.

Evaluation and License

This functionality will work with Sage Demo data without a license. A license is required to import into any other Sage Company.  Pricing
