Automate DMT upload – Powershell script

adminEpicor Administration


I was doing some work recently with forecasts.

My client was wanting to disable forecasts prior to a weekly run of MRP on a Sunday night.

After a few weeks of manually doing this every Sunday :-(, I decided to schedule the task.

After digging around I found some useful resources that documented how to do it using Powershell and the Task Scheduler.

Since writing the script to deactivate forecast, I have also used it to log out any users who have forgotten to log out of MES at the 23.58 on a working day.

The script below is the one for deactivating forecasts.

Hope this is useful.

  Two calls via DMT, on generates a list of employees still clocked on
  The file is generated in the c:\temp directory
  The file is used as the source file a command line import on the 'TE Labor Combined'
.PARAMETER <Parameter_Name>
 $DMTPath  - location of the DMT path
 $User - dmt upload user
 $Pass - dmt upload password
 $Env =- location of the config file
 $DMTLoad - name of the DMT load (needs 2 quotes to allow for spaces in the name)
 $Config - name of the config file
 $Source - file name of the CSV generated by the BAQ 
 $Log - names of the log file
