Frequently asked questions

  1. I'm getting an error message when I try to upload the Connect Logistics order entry file, what can I do next?
    Occasionally, Connect Logistics deviates from its own file format by adding out-of-format products to the order entry file (for example, an order charge). This error can be usually corrected by removing the out of format line item from the Order Entry (ORD) file. To remove the line, follow these steps.
    • Open the Order Entry (ORD) file in Notepad (on Windows) or TextEdit (on Mac).
    • Use Edit > Find to search for the SKU of the line you wish to remove (or look for a line with a format that is inconsistent with the other lines).
    • Remove the entire line for the out-of-format product.
    • Select File > Save.
    • Import the updated Order Entry (ORD) file using the steps outlined above.
    • Add the removed item(s) back to the invoice in GlobalTill after the import is successful.
