Version 4: Patch 32, Released August 28, 2007

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 (PATCH32.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 (which are smaller), use the links below:
Contains the PATCH32.DPF file which is used by DeltaDOS to update the program files.
Copy this file to the APROGS directory, decompress it and install the Patch32.DPF file with the DeltaDOS program.
Contains sample data files with new help articles and updated data.
Copy this file to the AUSER directory, decompress it and allow it to overwrite the existing files.
Contains system data files such as FR, PL and SCFM files.
Copy this file to the AFILES directory, decompress it and allow it to overwrite the existing files.

This patch contains minor bug fixes, several enhancements, and new features for use in conjunction with the new Windows version of the software.

Accounts Receivable program 52, Update General Ledger: A new feature has been added whereby you can choose to increment the Document Code on each entry created in General Ledger on an update. This feature was added mainly so that General Ledger deposit entries updated to Bank Reconciliation don't get 'rolled up' into one big transaction. Bank Reconciliation will combine G/L entries that share the same Document Code.

Inventory: Another batch of new fields have been added to various files for new features that will be in the upcoming Windows version of the module. Some minor DOS program changes were made in this connection.

Purchase Orders program 10, Post Items Received: Was not properly updating the Total Cost of a purchase order when deleting receipts.

Point of Sale: A new feature that adds two additional subtotals to Point of Sale invoices has been created. A new prompt has been added to System Defaults that allows you to choose one department that will be subtotaled separately. In addition to this subtotal which is the total for all line items on an invoice that reference that department, an additional subtotal shows the total for all line items not in that department.

The main reason for adding this feature is that the California Bureau of Auto Repair, apparently with the conviction that customers are incapable of adding, now requires that parts and labor be subtotaled separately on invoices. Users needing to comply with this new rule would specify their labor department in Point of Sale System Defaults. The labor department would be subtotaled separately, and the other subtotal of all other departments would be the parts subtotal.

Please note that unlike the subtotal line currently on Point of Sale invoices, which is a total before line discounts, these subtotals will take into account line discounts, though not invoice discounts.

If no department is chosen for separate subtotaling then the 'non-department' subtotal is in effect an invoice subtotal after line item discounts.

In order to use these new subtotals you will need to move them onto the printed portion of the Point of Sale invoices. They are currently located in a non-printing portion of section 8 of the reports. The new feature is active in both program 4, Full Invoicing, and program 5, Quick Invoicing.

Point of Sale: The recent enhancement to deal with longer Windows printer names created some problems in the Point of Sale invoicing and system defaults programs; programs 4, 5, 13 and 50 all have changed to better deal with the longer printer names. Due to lack of space, the size limit in Point of Sale is 55 characters, rather than the 57 characters available elsewhere. If your reports won't print to a specific Windows printer check to make sure your printer name isn't too long.

Point of Sale program 51, Estimate To Invoice: The new feature of transferring estimates to layaways would get fatal errors when trying to create Inventory allocations in some circumstances.

Order Entry program 52, Create Drop Ship POs: When the program created purchase orders it did not fill in the Backorder Quantity field. This allowed Purchase Orders program 53, Purge POs, to purge the purchase orders because it keys on the backordered quantity to determine if there are still items to be received on the POs.

Bank Reconciliation program 1, Gather Transactions: The program would duplicate AP checks that were already gathered if the transaction description in Bank Reconciliation was changed from that brought over originally from Accounts Payable.
