the data I'm getting from your other system

This is exactly why many of my customers have regretted giving in to the hype and moving major BOH systems 'to the cloud'. It takes months and even years to get low priority exports created or corrected...and when they do deliver, depending on the vendor, it might be half-assed, as with a customer I worked with yesterday.

I won't name the software here, but the exports they created for us are crap.
0: None provide a default filename or filetype/extension for the csv file created Confused | :confused:
1: 3 of 6 always default the save folder to some developer's desktop folder Confused | :confused:
2: All will happily create empty files WTF | :WTF: (usually when the end user forgets to select the correct dates) This is what I found yesterday after remoting into the customer's system...a bunch of 0KB sized files with no file extensions! Hmmm | :| This explains the error messages of 'No data found in the import file.' which I would have assumed was self-explanatory and not worthy of a support call. The truth is, when I asked about error messages, she had no idea, just that she clicked OK on something. Sigh | :sigh: Customers...Groan...easy fix! Laugh | :laugh:
