How to use record separator of import/export template in Sage ERP X3

By | February 28, 2015

While trying to import a file into X3 using import/export template you may come across a situation where data gets truncated and incomplete value gets imported. The reason may be the file you are trying to import contains the ‘CR’ (carriage return)’and ‘LF’ (line feed) at the last record of the line. To import this file with the valid data without truncating you have to modify your template.

Kindly refer to the below screen shot of the file.

To import this file kindly navigate to Setup > Usage > Imports / exports > Import/export templates, in Header tab under Structure section you will find Record separator field enter ‘1310’ in it.


The value has to be a ‘\’ (back slash) followed by 3 numbers representing the ascii code of the character in decimal base .We often use the line feed character (10), which corresponds to the end of the line in text files in Unix and carriage return (13) which corresponds to reset a device’s position to the beginning of a line of text. The combination of the two characters carriage return, line feed (1310)n which corresponds to the end of the line in Windows text files.

Hope this blog helps you in importing the correct data!
