Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Configuration > Overview work center.
  2. Search and open the activity Migration of Product Lists.
  3. In the next screen, click link to Migrate product lists using the migration tool.
  4. Upload your migration template or select it from the Source Files table.
  5. Click the button Execute, then Execute Migration Step by Step.
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions and progress until step 3.
  7. Error occurs.


The issue occurs because you maintained value as 2 (Cross/Up/Down Selling) in the Type column of the template's General sheet, and also maintained data for the Quantity and UoM columns of the Proposed Products sheet for the affected product list. In Cross/Up/Down Selling scenarios, the quantity of a product offered is determined in the sales stage. As such, proposed quantity for a product in Cross/Up/Down Selling scenarios is unnecessary.

From 1808 onwards, a validation has been created in the Product Lists migration to avoid the creation of data with this combination — when trying to enter data in the Quantity and UoM fields for a product list of Cross/Up/Down Selling type, the above-mentioned error message is raised.


To solve this, either maintain a different type in the General sheet of the migration template or remove data from the Quantity and UoM columns in the Proposed Products sheet.
