Below is the step-by-step process for importing inspections into the Inspection tab.

  1. Click on the Import button in the Inspection tab. 

  2. Click Next in the Import Inspection dialog box with the radio next to Tables specified in next step selected.

    *If the records are stored in a database that has been formatted for direct importing select the 'Database' radio.

  3. Click on a system table that the records will be imported to. The tables populated will vary depending on what custom tables are mapped in the Inspection Type Manager. At minimum, records should be imported to the IMIC_IPInspection table:

    Note that some fields have asterisks indicating the presence of a domain within the InfoAsset Planner database.  In addition some fields, while not required are important.  These include:

    Type - Specifies the different categories of inspections.  These are defined in the Type Manager.

    Facility Type - Ties the inspection to a particular facility type.  Each facility type in the InfoAsset Planner project has an associated number (Manhole = 1, Gravity Main = 8, etc.) so InfoAsset Planner will be expecting a number to be imported to this field.

    Facility ID - Ties the inspection to a particular facility within the specified facility type.

  4. Click on the Browse button next to the 'Select a table or feature class:' section found under the Import Source and browse to the layer containing the data. 

  5. In the Import Filter section, enter a query statement to specify the inspections that will be imported. The Query Builder button ()  will aid in building these queries.

  7. Map the system fields. 

  8. Click Import ().
