  • CSV Export Vs DB.XML Export

    Hi all,

    Could any one please tell me what is the difference between CSV Export and DB.XML Export.

    This page can be accesed in OTM via Business Process and Automation>Data Export.

    Thanks and regards,

    Pradeep,

    At the highest level, the difference is the format that the exported data is provided in. The CSV provides the export file in comma separated format, while the DB.XML provides the data within an XML format.

        Hi Pradeep,

        Other difference for certain elements is that the CSV export only works on one specific data table at a time. If you want to export a Location, you need to export one the following tables one by one:
        Location
        Corporation
        Location_refnum
        Location_corporation
        Location_address
        Location_role_profile
        All the information from the different tables are present in only one XML file.

        Hope this helps,

        Alejandro B.

          Can anyone suggest me how to use DB.XML format to upload consolidated invoices. If possible give me a sample XML file for Consolidated invoices?
