How do we import values into particular field of particular item type?

How do we import values into particular field of particular item type?

For example, I have a data file(it can be text file or xml file) as below.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Item ID       insert Value            field name
------------------------------------------------------------------
1234                         g              item_status
5678                         g               item_status
2234                         g                 item_status

All items are of same type. Is there any OOTB available in the TC?

You can use tc_attribute_bulk_update if you are not planning to use Live update.

TC documentation describes tc_attribute_bulk_update and its syntax (including the XML syntax).

Hi Harish,

 

Thanks for your reply. is tc_attribute_bulk_update a utility or an attribute or argument?

I have searched in utilities but not found.

Re: How do we import values into particular field of particular item type?

It's an OOTB TC utility in TC 11.2

 

alternatively, you can use ipsupload if you have access to it

Hi,

 

Thanks. But we are using TC 8.3. Is there any OOTB present in the TC8.3?

Hi,

 

one way way I could think off is to use the ipsupload program for tc 8.3.

you may want to check with your Siemens representative for ipsupload.

 

ipsupload is not available Ootb.

IPS_Data_Upload is a paid program compiled and sold by Siemens PLM Software which is why you need to talk to a Siemens Representative to get it. It is really powerful, commonly used for legacy data migrations and is unsupported.

You can create Items and structure using ps_upload which is a free utility that comes with Teamcenter. In order to update preferences beyond the basics, you can install Teamcenter Extensions for Microsoft Office. The Live Excel feature will allow you to update properties in bulk. You will need to learn about Transfer Modes.
