Replacements for smbXML

As of Version 2013 Release 2, NetSuite no longer supports data imports using smbXML.

There are two methods that can replace smbXML import: CSV Import and NetSuiteā€™s SOAP web services. Many customers choose the CSV Import Assistant because it has an easy-to-use UI and requires no programming knowledge. You can also import data using SOAP web services; however, programming knowledge and SOAP web services development are required. This method is more beneficial if you seek an automated system-to-system integration model.

To start learning about the CSV Import Assistant, see Additional Import and Export Options. You can find this topic in the NetSuite Help Center at Account Administration > CSV Imports > CSV Imports Overview.

To start learning about SOAP Web Services, see SuiteTalk SOAP Web Services Platform Overview.
