There is data in Manage that will have corresponding data in Sage 300. For example, when you create an invoice in Manage for the Company “Acme Inc.”, the integration program will need to create an Invoice in Sage 300 for the Customer “Acme Inc.”. In order to know against which Sage 300 Customer this invoice will be created, Manage needs some way to associate the “Acme Inc.” in Manage with the “Acme Inc.” in Sage 300. This process of associating data is known as mapping.
The following sections will describe what data needs to be mapped. When an improper mapping is found, the integration program will fail before attempting to export any data, giving you the information needed to fix the mapping.
