Import QAP dat file




In cases where you start using the GL system at the middle of the year, you can use this module to import those dat files so you can have complete QAP data for the whole year. Thus, you can use the 1604E to get all the data for the whole year and summarize them to generate the needed alphalist dat file.

Before you start importing, you must first delete the header and the footer of the DAT file using Notepad. See sample dat file open in a Notepad below:
