Mapping Corresponding Data
There is data in Manage that will have corresponding data in Sage 50. For example, when you create an invoice in Manage for the Company "Acme, Inc.," the integration program will need to create an Invoice in Sage 50 for the Customer "Acme, Inc.". In order to know against which Sage 50 Customer this invoice will be created, Manage needs some way to associate the "Acme, Inc." in Manage with the Acme, Inc." in Sage 50. This process of associating data is known as mapping.
The following sections will describe what data needs to be mapped. When an improper mapping is found, the integration program will fail before attempting to export any data, giving you the information needed to fix the mapping.
