File >> Advanced >> Re-Set Data Files and perform both Re-Set Part Process Quantities for all parts, Re-Set Customer Current Values for all customers and Re-Set Supplier Current Values for all suppliers.

Date: 20 Aug 2001, version: 1.0109, rating: 80, platforms: All

Description: In the CaliachMRP confirm PO prices window it was possible to confirm individual line items by selecting/modifying them and clicking OK.

B0148 - Remittance advice printing

Date: 15 Aug 2001, version: 1.0109, rating: 80, platforms: All

Description: When creating a payment from a bank account (e.g. payments to suppliers) which are not cheque payments (e.g. direct transfer or BACS), it does not appear possible to print a remittance without first assigning a cheque number. If we do this it means that our cheque book numbers will not agree with the numbers assigned by the system after creating non-cheque payments. Suggest a "print remittance" function in accounts payable, perhaps on the payments window, or even better from the "transaction allocation review" window. (Maybe combine these so that the new "print remittance" button could bring up the review window for the selection of the credit requiring a remittance print). Likewise the otherwise excellent "pay selected" feature allows the generation of a payment without cheque, and the selection of print cheque/and or remittance, but if the payment without cheque button is clicked with the relevant print option selected, no remittance is printed! This is critical to carry out our BACS payments before the end of the month. IMPORTANT NOTE: As a consequence of this change any user who has a custom report derived from any of rAcRemit, rAcRemitCheck, rAcRemitCheckOnly or rAcCheck3 must replace all class methods in them with the two class methods in the new upgraded standard reports.

Get around: None

B0149 - Un-invoiced Dispatches - foreign currencies won't invoice

Date: 16 Aug 2001, version: 1.0109, rating: 80, platforms: All

Description: If an un-invoiced despatch is in a foreign currency, it is shown in the upper list as local currency, and clicking on the line in the list does not show the despatches in the lower list - this effectively prevents invoicing for foreign currency dispatches. Sales history & un-invoiced valuations print OK, although in the valuation dispatches are shown in the foreign currency, making the totals wrong (should it not show a total in local currency?). Also returning the dispatched items (to dispatch and invoice at the same time) does not remove the company from the un-invoiced dispatches upper list. IMPORTANT NOTE: The rValueUnivSt report has been corrected to normalise sales value into local currency. Any custom reports derived from this should be amended accordingly.

Get around: Invoice at the same time as dispatch until fixed; return any un-invoiced dispatches and invoice/dispatch in one go.

Caliach response: wDespInv, wValuePrint, rValueUninvSt

Date: 21 Aug 2001, version: 1.0109, rating: 85, platforms: All

Description: After changing purchase part details while maintaining/creating a purchase order an auto update of relevant line items is made. If this changes the quantity the balance due quantity is left as before causing an inconsistency.

Description: When using the "List for Part" in Serial Number Maintenance to select serial numbers it would be great if the information in this list could be updated as the Serial Number information is changed in the main window. We use this listing to select Serial Numbers for SO assignment and then we work on them in the main window. You don't know which ones you have done because it does not update the list. Incidentally, why is there a choice as to whether to display customer name on this window?

CaliachMRP would not copy them if the preference was set. The copy function remains but the warning is now appropriate to what is being received.
