    PO line '' is not valid since resource type wasn't specified

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Alma

    Problem Symptoms:
    Error "PO line '' is not valid since resource type wasn't specified" - seen when importing EOD files.

    The New Order import profile has "Inventory Operations" marked as "Mixed", but the Resource Type is not mapped or mapping is incorrect.

    Alma can't determine whether to create Print or Electronic inventory.

    Correct the profile:

    1. Find the import profile from: Acquisition Configuration Menu > Import Profiles
    2. Edit your profile
    3. In the "Inventory Information" tab make sure the "Resource Type" is mapping correctly based on the input file
