Connectivity Manual - Inleiding
Connectivity is all about data import in Exact Financials. Data can be imported using data import, EDIS (Exact Data Interface System) direct import using IFALL or web services.
In the menu [System: Interfacing, Data, Import] you can choose to import data for the modules Finance, Sales, Budget or Project. The data to be imported must be in a csv-format (comma seperated value) as defined by Exact.
EDIS gives you the possibility to import data from a source application into Exact Financials. The data to be imported can be in the formats CSV, ASCII or XML. EDIS is the translation from the external data to the format which can be imported in Exact Financials. Imports can be started by using the task sceduler.
IFALL is used on validating the business logic on all data which are used by Exact Financials. If the source data is from a progress application then a direct link can be made to IFALL components (and the subsiquent validation). An IFALL interfase is real-time and interaction between source- and goal application is possible).
Web services can be used for real-time read, write, update or delete on the database from Exact Financials. There is no direct link to the database when you are using web services: an application requests an action using web services in which user rights are defined in Exact Financials. This allows a lot more control of you data.
