Creating New Cost Category in PA

@GP_Beat asked 8 years ago
Hi Everyone,
Maybe this has been answered in the past, but I couldn’t find anything in the SC forum about this.. I’m in the process of doing a complete rework of the way our Projects are allocated in GP and all the cost categories that are associated with them. I was trying to find a way to bulk ‘create’ all the new cost categories with SC, but I can’t find anything in the PA section related to this task .. Does such node exist or  not ? if yes, how can that be achieved ?
Thanks in advance for the answers.

There is not an existing node from eConnect to update or create Project Account Cost Categories.
You could update the tables directly using the SQL Table datasource, although due to the lack of business logic, it’s usually not the best choice. Or you can use Node Builder to create the business logic and node in SmartConnect to update the necessary table.

Thanks Lorren,
That’s what I thougth… will have a look at an alternative solution… Can NodeBuilder be downloaded and tested freely with the Fabrikam Inc. company in GP ?
Thanks in advance
