Importing GL’s to Acumatica – Duplicate Screen ID’s

Posted by Guillermo Pineda on September 11, 2017

Don’t run into conflicts with Screen ID’s when importing GL’s into Acumatica.


When you export the GL from a source company as an XML file, it includes the Screen ID that was automatically assigned by the system.  Then, when you import the GL to the target company, if there is another pre-existing GL with the same screen ID, the import will leave a duplicate Screen ID conflict. For example, you can’t add the new GL to a dashboard.



You can either export without a site map location, or you can import it, remove the site map location, save the GL, add it again to get a new Screen ID.



Existing ID = GIOZ034

Imported GL is also GIOZ034

These two were in conflict until I reassigned the new GI to another Screen ID.
