Excell Upload to provide responses to RFX Questions

Hi,

From all SAP Sourcing references and help, there is no mention about the capability to upload the response to RFP Questions using excel upload.

However according to the blog http://scn.sap.com/people/mahesh.jeswani/blog/2011/12/04/driving-rfx-process-using-microsoft-excel-in-sap-sourcing, by Mahesh Jeswani, it says that we could upload the responses to RFO questions using excel. I have checked our systems and could not find the response column mentioned in the blog.

I am using SAP Sourcing 7.0 (on-premise) and want to check with any of you if you could export the questions in excell and check if the excel has the response column?

So in summary, the question is as followed:

- Do you find that your Sourcing systems can import response to RFX Questions?

- If you could do this, what version of SAP Sourcing?

- Is there any setup needed to enable this?

I appreciate for any clarification,

Thank you,

Trygve Hasjim

    Hi Trygve,

    I am using SAP Sourcing 7.0 (OnPremise) and when logged in as a supplier I can export RFx questions into excel and it gives me the response column to fill in. When exporting questions logged in as a buyer there is no response column.

    As far as I am aware no configuration was required to activate this functionality.

    Regards

      Hi ,

      Check if your RFX type from which you have created has CSV import and related export import options checked .

    Daniel and Uday,

    Thank you for your response. I figured out that the RFX type should be setup with 'unchecking' the CSV Import.  The setup below will cause the buttons to export/ improt questions dissapear. I think the way the systems need to be configured is counter intuitive i.e. unchecking the check box means ' want to use CSV Import'...Do you find the same in your systems?

      Hi Trygve,

      Yes I find the same in my system. I have always found it best to leave the CSV Import Support box unchecked as this provides the users with a much more user friendly line item export file.
