Subject Re: using XML Import to load orders
Date Sat, 03 May 2008 09:51:13 GMT

Hi BJ,
I am under some time constraints and am in need of a quick and simple order

involvement such as massaging the order data in a spreadsheet before
loading. Can you direct me to someone in the community who may have
something? I'd be willing to pay for a solution that gets the basic job
