    ​Hello GPGUP,

    I have already done my research on this topic but wanted to hear someone to chime in.
    Is it possible to integrate employee Benefits into the HR benefit window (BE010130)?
    and if so, what would be the best method from a flat file?  I am aware of the triggers, feeding down to the Payroll Benefits and Deductions but I wanted to hear any feedbacks out there.
    thx.

    Hi @Toulou Yong

    Keep in mind that even if you can't write an integration with the standard tools (SmartConnect, Integration Manager) you CAN write a mail merge macro to any GP Window.

    so I took a stab @ it, and it is not going to work because we have 200K+ rows to deal with.  it's been crashing MS Word.
    I took several other trials with GP Power Tools as well, it yes, it crashes as well.  I'm testing other alternatives so I'll keep you all posted.
    thx.​​

    Hi Toulou,

    What works for me is GP Table Import (Tools > Integrate > Table Import)​ using Tab Delimited file. I would recommend doing it on test company first.

    ​yeah - I thought about that as well but I recall two MVP's recommending not to go that route.
    Did it also update your current data or were they mostly insert?
    thx,
