Clearing of Master data


Question / Problem: 

Common when a customer has done a lot of testing and want to start fresh.

Also applicable if you have had specific currency master data uploaded and want to reset the currency master data to default.

Answer / Solution: 

This can be done with Online Connect or the Excel add-in.

For the Excel add-in you can use the example file in the help:,  and delete all the values.

For Online Connect you use a master data XML file with no suppliers, purchase orders, currencies, or what master data table you want to clear out.


For purchase orders the XML will look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<PurchaseOrders xmlns:i="">


For suppliers:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Suppliers xmlns:xsi="">

And for currencies:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Currencies xmlns:i="">
