Transferring Data From POSM To GraniteXP

To transfer data from POSM to GraniteXP all POSM sessions must be performed in a NASSCO PACP, LACP or MACP template. POSM will automatically generate a StandardPacpExchange.mdb or StandardMacpExchange.mdb database when it detects a session is in these formats. To begin, open Session Management in POSM to export
the sessions.
Select the sessions to export by checking the sessions in the session list. You may also quickly select many files by: checking a session, then holding the left shift key, then check a session below or above the session you checked. POSM will then check all sessions between for you.

POSM Export of Data

Once the sessions have been checked, press the “Export To Folder” button. It is located below the green “Save to CD/DVD” button.

A pop up window will appear to ask where the sessions should be exported. Select your Computer icon, then select your external drive or network drive. Then press the “New folder” icon to create a new folder for the export.

Enter a name for the folder. We suggest that it includes the date and a description of the project.
Click “Open” to open the newly created folder.

Next, press “Save” to begin the export.

The sessions will now export.

If you go to the export location you will see the POSM export structure.
The Index.html file is the POSM report file that will open on any computers web browser. This allows any end user to view POSM’s reports without having to install additional software. The folders with letter codes in front of them (like AAA, AAB, AAC, etc) are part of the HTML reports.
The POSM.mdb file is the database POSM uses to store and transfer data.
The StandardPacpExchange.mdb file is the file that will be used to transfer to GraniteXP. The data has now been exported. POSM may be closed and the data can be taken to the
GraniteXP workstation.

Importing Data To GraniteXP

To import the NASSCO data created in POSM into GraniteXP open GraniteXP then go to the
Interfaces Menu.

From the Interfaces menu choose “Import” then “PACP/LACP.”

Press the “…” button on the upper right of the form to select the POSM NASSCO database.

Choose the StandardPacpExchange file from the folder that was exported in POSM.

When the process completes press “close.” You may also view the import log by pressing
“View Log”.

The data is now available in GraniteXP.
