Transfering Transactions and Key Data Between SmartFill Gen2 and the Website Via a USB Stick

Transferring transactions and key data between SmartFill units and the website

 

NB:  The SmartFill unit must have 1.07.xxx software of later to use this procedure

 

It is recommended that a single USB drive be used for all SmartFill units and files.

 

At the SmartFill Unit:

1) Insert the USB drive.

2) Enter the administration menu (hold CLR and ENT keys together for a few seconds, enter 1234 at the prompt, then press ENT).

3) Select (5) Unit.

4) Select (2) Import Data. (If you get an error, remove and re-insert the USB drive and try again. If is still doesn't work, then skip this step as the file was possibly not saved to the USB drive.)

5) Select (3) Export Data.

6) When the download has completed successfully, remove the USB drive.

7) Repeat steps (1) - (6) for the other SmartFill units.

 

 

At the Website:

1) Insert the USB drive into the computer.

2) Log in to your account and select the 'SmartFill Units' menu.

3) Select 'Import' from the left submenu.

4) Select the file from the first unit to import. e.g. '2183web.dat' and press the Import button.

5) When prompted to download the file, press the 'Download File' button.

6) Select the top directory of the USB drive and save the file as 'xxxxunit.dat' (see Browser Notes below), where xxxx is the serial number. e.g. '2183unit.dat'

7) Repeat from (3) for the remaining units.

6) Eject and remove the USB drive.

 

The data that has been exported can be imported into the SmartFill unit next time you need to export data from the unit.  It doesn't have to be done straight away.

 

You can now select the 'Transactions' menu to view the transactions.

 

 

Browser Notes

Depending on the browser used, saving the file will be different. It is important to do this correctly to prevent any problems. Here are some notes for the latest versions of the most common browsers.

 

Internet Explorer (IE)

You will be prompted at the bottom of the screen to open or save the file.

Press the small triangle to the right of the Save button and select 'Save as'.

Select the top level directory of the USB drive and press Save. If prompted to replace it, press 'Yes'.

You can then cancel any remaining message at the bottom of the browser screen.

 

FireFox

When prompted where to save the file, select the top level directly of the USB drive and press Save. If prompted to replace it, press 'Yes'.

 

If you are not prompted where to save the file, this must be changed in the FireFox settings, as follows.

Press the FireFox settings icon (three stacked horizontal lines to the far right of the address bar).

Make sure the General tab is selected (first on the left).

Under 'Downloads', select 'Always ask me where to save files'.

 

Chrome

When prompted where to save the file, select the top level directly of the USB drive and press Save. If prompted to replace it, press 'Yes'.

 

If you are not prompted where to save the file, this must be changed in the Chrome settings, as follows.

Press the Chrome settings icon (three stacked horizontal lines to the far right of the address bar) and select 'Settings'.

If you see at the bottom of the page a blue link saying 'Show advanced settings…', press it.

Scroll down to the 'Downloads' heading and select 'Ask where to save each file before downloading'.
