Thanks for responding. You got the two questions right. I
need to populate the parts table, and assign each part to a
category (partsgroup) along the way. My accounting background
is rather slim.....
should new income and
expense accounts be created? Or, use existing (eg, Sales 4010 and
Purchases 5010)? There are no services at this point for the
I'd be happy to write it with you. I'm also new to Perl; I've
been using Python for years and was going to write the load script
using a tool like SQLAlchemy.

What is the best way to
insert an associated photo in the file_part table? Meaning,
is there a way of duplicating the upload feature?
Looks like there are three account numbers that should be
supplied. How are these determined?
Am I correct to read at least two questions here?
1. How can I upload multiple parts (or maybe: how can I
create an initially seeded parts table)?
2. Once I have a parts table filled, how can I insert the
pictures belonging to these parts into the file_part table?
In order to be able to do (1) you indeed need to identify the
accounts to book inventory, income and COGS on. These IDs
correspond to the ID column from the 'account' table. If you
intend to set up services, you don't need to fill the
As far as the upload of pictures goes: that's a bit tough,
because the data is encoded before it's sent to the database.
You'd need to duplicate the encoding (I think it's base64, but
not sure) and do the upload yourself... But maybe it's more
practical that we write the upload script together to allow you
to write a script to drive a web based upload to achieve the
same purpose, much like the CSV uploads for gl accounts and some
other items that I wrote for 1.4?
