CSV Importer Issue - BOM Import

I am trying to import via CSVImp into xTuple. I am trying to import BOMs, one at a time. The item is already created in xTuple, just the BOM needs to be imported. I have a CSV file with the information required. Upon importing in CSVImp, I get an error message saying that the item number must be an integer, not a string. The item numbers in xTuple are all strings (ie. ASY 016). How do I successfully import BOMs? Thank you!

column bankaccnt_rec_accnt_id in the bankaccnt table?


I notice this column in the bank account table: bankaccnt_rec_accnt_id


There doesn't appear to be any field in the bank account settings form to fill this column in the database.  What is it for?  Is it no longer in use?

understanding the forward update settings for G/L accounts



Each G/L account has a "forward update" setting, stored in the boolean column accnt.accnt_forwardupdate


What exactly does this mean?  When somebody is importing a new G/L account list, how do they decide which accounts need this setting?

Profit centre use

I am setting up Postbooks and the profit centre is explicitly linked to my COA, meaning I effectively have to duplicate my COA for each profit centre as well as creating items to post to each combination. Is there a way to add profit centre to a transaction similar to classes in QuickBooks? Another dimension could be suitable.

Postbooks Users

I hope anyone in xtuple can clarify for the open source edition PostBooks, I am not talking about the cloud connect. 

How many concurrent users for the free Postbooks have? Just one?

I am trying to test the multi users now, but PostBooks ask key. If Postbooks is only free for single user, what is next minimum upgrade path? 

I have tried to asked key@xtuple to clarify this, but I have never received answer nor key or multiusers. Read more »

download csvimp executable

I have not downloaded the PostBooks repository as I am testing the Hosted version of xTuple and was furnished the app UI for my computer.  Is there a list of executables one can download such as CSVimp for specific OSes?  I have no intention of building from source any of the tool set if it is all possible to avoid it.

Purchase Price Variance

On most of my purchased items, I am given xx% discount from my supplier.  I do not care about the purchase price variance.  In order to not use the Purchase Price Variance G/L account, should I just map the "Purchase Price Variance" item in the appropriate cost category to my PO Liability G/L account, instead of the PPV G/L account?  Thanks.
