Version 4: Patch 25, 03-APR-06

Version 4: Patch 25, Released April 3, 2006

This patch has been compressed with the PKZip utility. After downloading, you must decompress it before installing it with the DeltaDOS program.
This patch affects not only programs, but data files in both the System and Data directories. The above link (PATCH25.ZIP) is rather large because it contains all the files updated by this patch. If you would rather download the files for each directory separately, use the links below:
Contains the PATCH25.DPF file which is used by DeltaDOS to update the program files and UPDATELU.EXE to update module lookup files.
Copy this file to the APROGS directory, decompress it and install the Patch25.DPF file with the DeltaDOS program.
Contains sample data files with new help articles and updated data.
After loading these files you will need to update both your data and PL files through System Administrator program 7.
Copy this file to the AUSER directory, decompress it and allow it to overwrite the existing files.
Contains system data files such as FR and PL files.
Copy this file to the AFILES directory, decompress it and allow it to overwrite the existing files.
This large patch fixes a few small problems, adds several new features to the software, and also updates some aspects of the software that must be changed in order to be compatible with our coming Windows version release:
  • NEW FEATURE: The Inventory Audit Trail, program 31, now has a new Label Printing option. In addition to reports, you can now print item and serial number labels based on the arrival of inventory (whether through receipts, productions, or other means). Labels can be printed based on the quantity increase, or by a specified constant number. When labels are printed for a given audit trail entry, there is also an internal flag set on that entry, so you can tell the program to only print labels for those entries that have not already had labels printed.

  • NEW FEATURE: Two new key files have been added to the Inventory audit trail. This will significantly speed up processing and printing of reports that use the audit trail, specifically:
  • Inventory program 29, Below Minimum Report
    (Daily option)

  • Inventory program 31, Audit Trail Report and Clear

  • Purchase Orders program 11, Auto-Create POs
    (Daily Minimum option)

  • Order Entry program 3, Picking Tickets
    (Item and Location options when printing only items appearing in the audit trail)

  • Quick Sale Office program 1, Export To Store
    (when exporting only items in the audit trail)

In addition to accelerated processing, the new keys also allow you to print your audit trail reports in order by activity date or by item number (previously you could only print by date).

  • Enhancement: The Customer Information labels printed by CI program 81 now have all CI fields available to be printed. The extra fields added are all currently outside the printable area of the label and must by moved with System Administrator program 11, Modify Reports, in order for them to print on labels.

  • Enhancement: Added the Customer State field to the reports printed by Billing programs 4 and 10. The new field has been added outside the printable area of the reports and must by moved with System Administrator program 11, Modify Reports, in order for it to print on reports.

  • In Order Entry program 3, Picking Tickets, if you used the Item option and specified no sorting, the program would bomb if there was nothing to print on the report.

  • When changing decimal classes in a module, the decimal settings in custom lookups were not being updated if you did not have a company specific print layout file. Now it will always update company specific lookups, and, if none exist, offer to update the default lookup decimals at your option.

  • In Inventory program 26, Quantity Sold, the program would allow the user to enter a serial number sold for a non-serialized item if the Inventory warehouse feature was turned off.

  • The Custom Lookup programs in all modules would allow you in certain unusual cases to define a lookup window too wide for the screen.

  • The versions of company-specific custom lookup data files are now displayed in System Administrator program 6, Maintain Files in the Info option.

  • Compatibility Issue: The format of the custom lookup data files needed to be upgraded for use with the Windows version currently in development. There is no change in the functionality of the custom lookups, but a number of internal changes were necessary. The changes to the lookup files make any company-specific custom lookup files you have created obsolete. Included with the patch is a utility program called UPDATELU.EXE that you will run from the operating system prompt. This utility updates all of your custom lookup files. Until the utility is run, your custom lookups will not function--you will receive an error message.
Using the UPDATELU Utility

Once you've downloaded the zipped patch file and decompressed it in your APROGS directory, simply go to the operating system prompt, switch to the APROGS directory and type UPDATELU. The program will display a list of the custom lookup files as it updates them. Once the program has successfully run, your lookups are once again ready to use.
