Opening zipped files from Data Export or Nightly Sync Reports

6 Sep

Linxworks Manager’s DTS/data export zipped files have an extension of .dts_archive.  This was set up to overcome issues with zipped files, viruses and fire wall restrictions at some equipment dealers. To open these zipped files make sure you have unzipping software (e.g. WinZip or 7zip) installed on your computer (always check with your IT dept. before installing any software.)

 TO OPEN .DTS_ARCHIVE FILES: using WinZip as the example:

1. Open the email

2. Save the attachment to your desktop

3. Right mouse click the attachment, from the drop down Click “OPEN WITH…”

4. Choose WINZIP or WINZIP EXECUTABLE from the software list.

5. Click the check box at the bottom “Always use this program to open these files“.

6. Click OK

Once this “.dts_archive” extension is associated with WinZip, your computer will now recognize these attachments and open them automatically with a double click.

REMEMBER:  Our streamlined Linxworks Manager application system allows you to:

  • Upload your equipment listings automatically
  • Copy your equipment listings to Craigslist & eBay, as well as our syndication partners’ sites
  • View a quick spreadsheet of all your equipment listings (includes links to your photos)
  • & More

Linxworks’ MANAGER allows users to create a quick CSV file (similar to an Excel spreadsheet) of their Manager search results.  You can EDIT your inventory, check on the “Select info to be displayed in list” boxes you want to display and then click VIEW INVENTORY.  Using the CSV OUTPUT link in the top left hand corner of your results, they can then be easily exported as a comma-separated values (CSV) file.  Works with the QUOTE tool, as well.  These are permission driven tools that can be granted to users by their MANAGER Administrator or  CONTACT US for more information from Linxworks’ Support.
