LiquorConnect - Setup and Configuration

Topic overview

The LiquorConnect feature is an option designed to export and import purchase order information to and from the Connect Logistics Services Inc.'s LiquorConnect service. You need to create this company supplier in addition to the tasks described in this topic.

The following tasks are required to set up and configure the LiquorConnect export and update functions.

Set up the Export function 1. Download the liquorconnect.zip file from the FTP site's pub/special folder. Right-click on the file and select 'Extract All' from the drop-down menu. Follow the on-screen instructions, clicking [Next] until the process is complete. Note where you extracted the files to, as you need to specify a data directory that is used for the update in the same folder. I would recommend saving the extracted file in this path C:\liquorconnect folder

2. Access XML Central via the Navigator menu path: Setup Tools> Utilities> XML Central. The XML Central dialog box appears.

3. Click [Export To XML] to open the XML Export window.

4. Click [New] on the Toolbar.

NOTE: The file Path, Name and Extension do not affect the export. You can use any value you like.
