Data Migration

PartsBox offers a data migration service for users who are currently using a different electronic parts management solution and are considering moving to a PartsBox paid plan. This service helps users transfer their existing data into PartsBox, ensuring a smooth transition and minimizing the effort required to get started with the new system.

Trilogy Parts&Vendors™

Trilogy's Parts & Vendors™ (P&V) software, although no longer officially supported, is still widely used in many organizations. If you are currently using P&V and wish to migrate your data to PartsBox, please follow these steps:

  1. Prepare a zip file containing the Parts&Vendors Microsoft Access database (a file with an extension of .mdb).
  2. Contact PartsBox support at and attach the zip file.
  3. The PartsBox team will process your data and import it into your PartsBox account.


For users migrating from PartKeepr, the process involves generating a dump of your MySQL database in XML format. To do this:

  1. Use the mysqldump tool to generate the XML dump by running the following command: mysqldump –xml partkeepr –result-file pk.xml
  2. Send the resulting pk.xml file to

Please note that the dump must be generated using the mysqldump tool. Other tools, such as phpMyAdmin, generate their own formats, which are more difficult to process and may result in a less accurate data migration.
