Paste into a Basket from Excel
You may have a list of raw materials or formulations which have been produced outside of Formpak, and you may need to perform some function within Formpak for them. The quick way to get a list of items into Formpak is to copy the list and paste into a Basket. From the basket you can add to many different places in Formpak, e.g. to suitability check, find matching items and report, or print documents and labels.
- Copy the list of item codes from excel. Note copy only item codes, not names. You can also paste CAS numbers, instead of item code numbers.
- To access baskets press the ‘Baskets’ button, which is located top right, just under the ‘Logout’ button.
- Press + to show the item code box. Paste the list into the basket using CTRL V, targeting the first Item box.
- Formpak will create a new entry for each raw material. Save the basket.
With the items in a basket, you can then move them into many other areas, such as Find Matching Items, Print Documents and Labels, Suitability Check, Manage Cross References.
Please note, if you paste CAS numbers, and if there are multiple items for the same CAS number, please check the items added to the basket are as you intended.
