Inventory Import: Production

This FAQ will go over importing production data in Paradigm. More information on inventory import & export can be found here: Inventory Import & Export

This table contains the data found in the production tab on an item.

Importing New Production Data

When importing new production, be sure to include the following columns: product ID (strProductID), sequence (intSequence), linked component sort (lngLinkComponentSort), and machine ID (intMachineID).

When importing, select the “Update existing and add new production steps.” import option.

Be sure to not include a cntID column when adding new data. Including a cntID will update the existing record that has that ID, more information on that in the next section.

Updating Existing Production Data

The easiest way to set up an import sheet is to first export the product IDs you want to make changes to. Be sure to include the cntID and product ID column.

Then make the desired changes in the sheet and then import it back into Paradigm. Be sure to choose the “Update existing production steps only.” option when importing.


A common use case for this is updating machine IDs.

First export the cntID, product ID, sequence, and machine ID.

Change the machine ID in the sheet and then import it into Paradigm.
