NetSuite 2017.1 Updates: CSV Import Enhancements

The new NetSuite 2017.1 release has enhanced the user experience in a variety of ways, one of which is the CSV import function. NetSuite has added two new features to using the CSV import function: consolidated exchange rate updates and large custom list imports.

CSV Import Supported for Consolidated Exchange Rate Updates

Users are now able to import from CSV files to update consolidated exchange rate record data in NetSuite. If your organization uses OneWorld, has multiple subsidiaries with different base currencies, and manually edits various consolidated exchange rates, then take advantage of this enhancement!

First, navigate to List > Accounting > Consolidated Exchange Rates and view a current exchange rates. Before updating a record via import, it is always a good idea to familiarize yourself with the fields of this record.

Notice the following fields. These are the fields on the record that you can map to and update.

  • Average Exchange Rate
  • Current Exchange Rate
  • Historical Exchange Rate

NetSuite also requires an external ID or an internal ID to uniquely identify the consolidated exchange rate you are updating.

To import updated consolidated exchange rate data, navigate to Setup > Import/Export > Import CSV Records. Only the Update data handling option is available for the import of this type of data.

Large Custom List Imports Supported

Users are also now able to import a much larger amount of data than previously. CSV Import now supports the import of custom lists that have up to 25,000 values. The import Assistant checks to ensure that the custom list you are importing has 25,000 values or less before proceeding with the import.
