This patch contains minor bug fixes, a few enhancements, and changes for compatibility with the new Windows version of the software.
  • Accounts Receivable program 25, Sales History, did not properly limit the report based on entering a range to include only one specific Invoice Reference. This was a change to the SCFM file.

  • The default reports printed by Inventory program 29, Below Minimum, and program 30, Serial Age Analysis, have been rearranged and improved for better readability.

  • Another batch of new fields have been added to various Inventory files for the upcoming Windows product. There will be no visible change in the DOS version, but users will need to run System Administrator program 7, Update Files, to maintain compatibility. A new set of Inventory demo company AA files, already converted, is included with the patch.

  • Inventory program 52, Clear Sales Totals, has been changed internally for compatibility with the upcoming Windows product. There will be no noticeable functional change under the DOS version.

  • In Point of Sale, display pole type B (NCJR HPC) has been scrapped. It was replaced with support for Logic Controls display poles, currently the most commonly used pole in the industry. In-house testing of the new interface was conducted using a Logic Controls model PD3190, but it should be compatible with most any PD3000 series pole. This included a change to the SCFM file.

  • Point of Sale program 51, Estimate To Invoice, has been enhanced with a new option that allows estimates to be copied or transferred to layaway invoices. The new option applies only to AR estimates, not cash estimates. A new set of Point of Sale demo company AA files, containing updated help articles pertaining to this enhancement, is included with the patch. This included a change to the SCFM file.

    • In addition, the AUTO invoice numbering feature is now available in the Transfer option - it was previously only available with the Create option.

    • Also fixed a problem when copying/transferring estimates with serial items. If no serial number was assigned to a serialized item on the estimate, when the estimate was converted the program updated Inventory incorrectly, adding a direct warehouse to the serialized item.

  • The Point of Sale Full Invoicing, Quick Invoicing and Invoice Reprint programs were all updated to eliminate the occasional but very infrequent File Not Found errors that could pop up when printing to Window printers.

  • In Point of Sale program 4, Full Invoicing, when in View mode and the Display Quantity option in System Defaults is set to Warehouse, the Quantity on Hand and Quantity Available figures were displaying the wrong figures.

    Payroll program 17, Direct Deposit, no longer creates blank files when the Create option doesn't find any detail to deposit.

  • Improved the validation of Chart of Accounts numbers under the Single Check option of Accounts Payable program 7. In a very specific situation, you were allowed to post with blank COA numbers. Now must enter valid Chart of Accounts numbers at all four prompts.

  • Made the RapidEntry defaults friendlier for the on-the-fly Add Customer (Ctrl-U) and Add Item (Ctrl-T) options. FYI: The on-the-fly RapidEntry defaults can be changed by you; select either the Add Customers or Add Items option under the F4...File Utilities option, then select the Setup RapidEntry option. This caused the SA SCFM to be changed.

  • In Order Entry program 2, Print Orders, if detail taxes were requested to be printed the Order option was summing up the detail values across all printed orders. The Report option did not print detail taxes at all.

  • Order Entry program 4, Post Picked Items, did not clear the last line number entered after picking a line. If the operator wasn't paying attention they might end up trying to pick the same line multiple times.

  • All Report Generator dictionaries have been updated. Several minor problems were addressed, all having to do with the default from-to ranges for numeric fields. Some were larger than necessary, others smaller. Other miscellaneous minor fixes were also done.

  • Report Generator program 1, Create Simple Format, and program 2, Create/Edit Format, were changed to add certain types of fields at a more appropriate default size.

  • Throughout the software, the display of various look-ups has been improved. Specifically, the Section look-up in System Administrator program 11 and Screen Builder; the Windows Printer list when displayed in a few specific places; the Period look-up in General Ledger; the Deposit File Name look-up in Payroll program 17; the Custom menus look-up in System Administrator program 14; the Macro look-up; and Field Description look-ups in Customer Information.

  • In changing the display of Windows printer names, the maximum length of a Windows printer name has been increased from 40 to 57.
