Update Info:-

Postby basit » July 26th, 2005, 12:18 am

March 2005

Audit security also introduced for Goods-Receiving - If any document is not completed due to any failure the program will warn you. File for complete document is stored in \programs as a file called doc-g.(terminal number) - for Invoicing its doc.(terminal number)

Audit security further improved, now at Invoicing if any document fails to print or any system error occurs, if the terminals is used before the next document is generated you will be notified of the incomplete document. (see above)

A complete change of managing selling prices has been done in the Invoicing package. The various options of changing and using price structures have been modified. You can now link a selling price directly to a customer by using :-
A) Inserting a [2 or [3 next to the customer name , this will auto use selling price 2 or 3
B) Insert <1 <2 <3 next to a customer name and in the special parameters field of any stock code inserting <1=price <2=price <3=price <4=price .
C) Using parameter 29 which will allow a 2nd price to be used based on which document is used.
D) For setting Promotion Pricing - In Special parameters of any code you insert [P1(price) [PS(YYMMDD) [PE(YYMMDD) example if you want to set the selling price for an item to 10.99 to start on the 21st March 2005 and end at 29 March 2005 you will insert the following in special parameters in the stock code [P110.99 [PS050321 [PE050309
E) Parameter 197 can be set to 1 (only if the stock parameters are pre-set on install) to display what you sold item at last to a particular client.
F) insert next to a stock description **(code) to use the coded price as a price Example: if you insert next to a description **AJIE the selling will default to 10.95 if your cost coding is JABCDEFGHI.
G) Inserting in Discount matrixes the discounts for various stock groups linked to customers.
H) Inserting next to customer name <BRA?? - Example if you inserted <BRA10 the selling price will be cost plus 10%.

Job Cards now also has the same quick view option as Lay-byes i.e. in report generator you can quickly view how old (in days) is the Job Card.

Lay-bye report further improved with balance info on database and Balance overdue in Report generator

Parameter 14 introduced for quick changes of prices by inserting coded digits in stock description after **

Audit of all terminals now at view transactions. (Usage of f1 key and system aborts)

Many clients are using HP laser printers to print cash slips with (A4 paper cut evenly into four sheets inserted in lower tray as a bundle), same printer is used to print labels and reports - If you have a logo with your company details on it you can now save this logo as logo-s.jpg in the \programs directory and the logo will be printed on the cash slip -
If you using a logo with your company details ensure that you insert a (at) in parameter 4

Extra parameter for day end reports added to automate the process without displaying anything on screen or printer (ONLY Audit and posting prompts)- Insert G in parameter 74

Many times when working with creditors, the invoice dates are not entered in date order , a new <S> function when viewing a Creditors accounts in the Creditors module allows you to sort all documents according to dates for one or all accounts.

A new quick look at all lay-byes overdue by number of days has been introduced in the Report Generator module. If you choose deposit report you can view lay-byes according to number of days not collected. Please note: If you have old lay-byes on file you will have to do a new storage so that this report can work. Choose create a report and at the command prompt enter DOC:DEP and then press <Enter> then choose the dates from which the new storage must begin and end (choose a year back to start report from ) , and don't forget to insert a one "1" at new storage. You will also note after this that each deposit account will have details of when the deposit was made (date).

February 2005

An bug in Debtors transactions when viewing from a date has been fixed and also checking document sequences for Lay-Byes has been altered.

Now (Thanks to NooShoes) you can from point of sale menu press F1 key and then "V" to go VIEW any Stock Item - return to point of sale again by pressing f1 from VIEW STOCK module - Great for using in stores that have a terminal to just view stock status / pricing etc - New program name is called View-S.exe

Stock take/updates now displays three files rep-dis.txt (now only shows discrepancy) rep-tak.txt (now shows all stock taken) not-tak.txt (shows stock not taken) - Also minus quantities handled better.

Debtors/Creditors module on entering receipts if account is fully paid all Invoices will be auto marked as being paid.

Receipts (Debtors) fixed error on posting to terminal file on printing (shows on transaction list but not on till status)

Backup now further improved - Backup.exe in \programs can be set on your desktop and linked to windows schedular.

January 2005

If you have been using the round off parameter at the end of each document (paramater 93) , you must install this new update. We discovered with the help of Yusuf (Impex) that if a document is ended and the operator decides to use the left arrow after a round off has been done the next edited item or inserted items does not charge VAT. The new update fixes this.
December 2004

Goods Receiving and Ordering Module now has a new function that allows for the creation of an export file (like the branches export file in Debtors) through the Enter an Order Menu - This is useful if you have not entered your orders through the system and if you received a pro-forma invoice with delivery happening later, you can temporarily create the export file and use it only when the goods arrive to quickly update stock values.

Stock program now has option to export to Excel (Insert 1 at custom) - If sizing is chosen in the custom report it will auto create sizing grid for Excel - excel storage can also be stored as a report ----- Future update will include a fully integrated Excel format grid (www.compubyte.co.za/dev2.htm)

November 2004

The Email interface has been further improved and the print out of the email has a better layout - check out your statements and see the difference.

Now Creditors Transactions (VAT) can also be exported to Excel the same way the Debtors Cash & Account transactions are done. This is useful if you want better formatted reports.

Now PAID OUT slips in POS match stationery chosen, custom or otherwise - also better draw handling with pouts.

Security is important in any point of sale environment, we have now set up an audit trail for each document in the POS module , so if a user (cashier) re-boots the system in the middle of processing a document or if the f1 key is pressed you will be notified when a audit is done at day end.

Receipts module further modified to allow batch posting from any Microsoft Excel file, this is helpful when you download an Excel file from your bank of all deposits made directly into your account, all you do is save this file in the \programs directory.
FNB has an excellent facility when searching for transactions using the ebucks portal.
Another usage for this is if you have inserted all cheques deposits into an Excel spreadsheet and need to receipt same. Always make sure you have four columns
1) Date in the format month/day/year Eg 1st November 2004 inserted as 11/1/2004
2) Amount
3) Balance
4) Ref/Description
Save file as a MSDOS CSV file. (i.e having the extension csv)

October 2004

Receipts prints outs match stationery and printer port chosen (including emails)

Term.exe in \programs is the new file to use on terminals (instead of bat file) - better security

Now you can invoice to Branches at Selling price using parameter 137


It is often that many clients call and enquire how they can move a stock item/s from one group into another without losing the history of the item. We have now written a new module to the stock program (under edit update) which allows you to move stock codes from one group into another. Use with caution when you have branches , should be done only at head office and the changes effected to the branches will occur only when new stock is sent to them, you may have to also move codes at the branches.

Checking file errors on day end made faster (mr.exe and backup.exe) - Backup made now in directories \back-m\p? (Xcopy) and \backup\p? (Arj) - Please note the question mark is the period when the backup is made ( 1 to 5 ) - No more month and year added to P (See also August Updates 1) under lable)

Please check your old parameter file for cash draws - because of so many different models in the market we decided to only keep one parameter which will set the type of draw you using - Parameter 14 now uses simple set up routine to choose the a cash draw. ( You can insert what draw you have in the new updates after checking what was your old settings)

September 2004

A new parameter introduced which allows for companies that have branches connected via adsl/dataline or wireless connections to view stocks across the network much faster - Parameter :-
Entry number : 180

╔════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╗
║ If your have a wireless or data-line network connecting branches live
║ and the OTHER BRANCHES (viewing stock in invoicing (*)) is on a
║ different Drive what is the Branch and drive letter ( Eg: .1 =F: .2
║ =H: .3 =I: ) You must list all branches (WITH SPACES as in EG) and the
║ drives they mapped to - make sure the branches drives are mapped
║ accordingly
╚════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╝
This parameter allows you to set on which drive the other branches information is on. It will auto switch to the required branches drive (provided you have mapped all drives).


You could be running twenty or more terminals on your network and what if one or more terminals cannot connect to the server , do you shut them down ?

With the newest update you don't have to be connected to the server to do Cash Sales. All you do is run the backup.exe file which you must have copied the local hard drive of the terminal (C Drive) in the root directory (C:\) . Simple ! ! ! -

What do you have to do so that you can have such a facility :- (load this update)

a) You make sure you have backup on your desktop - which points to the server F:\programs\backup.exe (create a short cut - where F is your server drive).

b) Do regular backups from the server to you local drive by clicking on this backup icon -
or simplify this by using the Microsoft task scheduler. (no clicking does it auto)

Now if you server is down or you can't access it all you do is run the backup.exe from the root directory of your terminal - choose "X" to make the terminal run on a local drive W: -

Once your server is Up you run the same backup again and choose "Y"

Simple as X and Y . . .

August 2004

VIDEO FILE - Visual Tutorial for using the new labeler


All new customizable labeler for Windows - Integrated with CompuByte labeling system - you can customize your own labels (only US$169 or SA Rands R999) - The New Updates have a trial version of this software - ~ ~ Start designing your labels now ~ ~

Template info:- (program is label.exe)
Normal Labels - (Now with seperate size field) label.blf data from \u2\nlab.* > to labels.csv - Macro is labels.macro
Display Labels - labeld.blf data from \u2\nlab.* > to labelsd.csv - Macro is labelsd.macro

Database Labels - lable-d.blf data created Lab-data.csv


Backup.exe and mr.exe (Day end routine) now does Data integrity checks on all major files. - Backup further improved now each backup is in the directory according to the period P1 to P5 (P1 being 1st week P5 being last week in the month) Eg : 15 Aug 04 backup will be in directory \backup\P2 (for arj backup) and \back-m\p2 (for Xcopy Backup) on local drive.

New enhancement on Backup.exe module - Now checks integrity of Stock files before backing up and allows you to view corruption before amending the stock file - Sorts out corrupted stock files after power failures or critical shutdowns.

Stk-take.exe (Stock taking module modified) - Will now accept input from all makes of scanners and you can also insert multiple items for one stock code : Example :- 120 Yellow socks, all you need to enter at scan prompt is 120*plucode. Also to this module a new report is created (\programs\not-stk.txt) which will show you how many items were not scanned during stock take and still appears as stock quantities in your stock file. You can now also choose to take stock of specific groups only and a comparison will be made.

July 2004

Stock takes using scanners (updated stk-take.exe) now also as a menu item in stock package. As long as your wireless scanner or even any file is used to create a text file in \programs directory called sdata, this programme will utilize the sdata and create the required discrepancy report and updates. Sdata is a normal text file with the barcode (plu) and size in each line or if you using two lines one for barcode (plu) and the other for quantity.

June 2004

Thanks to Ridfaz supermarket (Ridwaan) we have improved our case lot and loose items function (see Nov 2002 below). So if you selling loose stock items that you broke from a case lot, the stock history will now show a GRN with a minus document number which is the number of the cash slip/invoice which drew the stock from another code (case lot) and also reflect this GRN in the receiving code (loose item) as a plus item. - Note the minus document number should indicate to you in the history that a stock adjustment/transfer occurred on an item. Case lots and loose items explained in updates November 2002

New parameter for rounding of to nearest decimal (1/2/3) - Parameter 93 - Thanks to Yusuf at Impex we now have round off for Botswana Thebe and credit notes also rounding off correctly.

New module to automate branch transfers - three new programs :-
do.exe
do-use.exe
do-now.exe

New parameters introduced for transfer files. Parameter 128 must be set - This will create another menu item in Point of Sale with the following options:-
Point of Sale Package -> Other Choices File Transfers Send/Receive
┌──────────────────────────────────────┐
│ Prepare/Use Transfer - Day End/Start │
│ Do Goods Receiving │
└──────────────────────────────────────┘
During each business day you will use the prepare/use transfer option. choosing Enter at end of each day and 1 at the beginning. This will create \data? (Question mark is replaced with numeric branch code Eg \data2 for branch 2) directory which will be collected from the head office each night and then collated using all the branches info gathered, this data will be returned to the branch in a directory called \rec. The receive and transfer of files must be scheduled with windows scheduler and Pcanywhere file transfer utilities.

The files in the Pcanywhere auto-transfer utility at the Head Office should do the following :-
1) Receive all files in the \data? directory at the branch in an equivalent directory \data? at head office.
2) Once all files are received at head office the do-use.exe file should be run(activated)
3) The above program will create files in directories \send? at the head office (? is the numeric branch code of the branch Eg \send2 for branch 2)
4) The data in \send? directories must be sent to each branch into a directory called \rec

A new coding in the branch accounts (Debtors) must be added, this coding will indicate what branch number the debtor is. All branch debtors have <BRA next to their names, they should now include the branch number using the format [B:? (Where question mark is the numeric branch number - ensure that you begin with a square bracket). You must also ensure that the branches use account numbers (Debtors) from 3 to 9 and para 41 and 114 set to 1.

The other parameters set as :-

Entry number : 124
╔════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╗
║ [BRA] Enter the Branch Numbers where stock is to be sent to from Head ║ Office using do-use.exe Eg: 2/3/4/5 ║
╚════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╝
This parameter when enabled will create a stock file for each branch in a directory at the head office called \data2 \data3 \data4 etc as per settings in para 124. Once do-use.exe is used at the head office the files in this directory will create files called \send2 \send3 etc. Using PC-Anywhere you could transfer the files into the branch directory called \rec.
Windows scheduler must be used in conjunction with pcanywhere transfer files to automate this process..

If para 128 (below) is set you could also receive full data from branches (Dr's/Cr's/Etc)

Entry number : 128
╔════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╗
║ [BRA] Enter 4 digit Access Code used (If any) to fully automate file
║ transfers (Imports an Exports) for batch files over modems and insert
║ this process in POS - Use a 1 as the first letter of your Access Code
║ to use Newest inter branch transfer routine - if last digit (4th digit)
║ is a 4 system will backup/restore all data from branches
╚════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╝

New Parameter Added:- (If your head office is not company 1 and if you using two companies (branches) from the same server - Thanks to Nooo Shoes (Mathew)

Entry number : 125
╔════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╗
║ [BRA] If your numeric number for the head office is not 1 then insert
║ /H?? where ?? is the numeric number of your branch (Eg. Head office is
║ 11 insert /H11) - If you have a branch running of the same server and
║ network you must insert /I? also into the data field where ?? is the
║ numeric branch number that is on the same network (Eg. Branch 3 insert
║ /I3) ║
╚════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════╝


New Lables for Shelf Talkers introduced from Goods-Receiving - all you need to do is insert a S at Lables Format or a space and a S next to your current Lables format - Thanks to Shaheed at Daxina Supermarket.

May 2004

Thanks to Adil (Molopole - Taj Spares) we now calculate job cards conversions to invoices or cash slips in report generator

Thanks to Sava(All Spares - Halfway House - JHb) we now use slips.exe more effectively for credit notes. - For those of you who don't use slips.exe this is a program that allows you a single point where all cash slips are printed and collected - At this point all cash slips are viewed and monitored , so you could have multiple terminals generating cash slips and customers would go to one terminals to collect cash slip and make payment.

Thanks to JEEP outlets (Rob) we now have scrollable option to view sizing as well as an extra prompt which allows you to insert two rows below the sizing grid on the print out for stock count and variance check. .

We have sorted a bug in the deposits module (Invoicing), if a deposit was made on one terminal and then collected later on another terminal, the storage of the original document corrupts the storage data file. Now deposits can be cancelled (reversed) must easier all you do is retrieve the deposit, call up the same stock code and insert a minus quantity equivalent to what was initially deposited then end the document, at value of deposit paying insert a minis value equivalent to the money paid by the customer. (document would thus be nil). - In this way stock is also reversed and all vat adjusted accordingly.
New feature JOB cards and Deposits cannot be edited once done, many customers complained that operators would delete items on a job card or deposit before conversion is made into a cash slip or invoice. Any description that has a ^ before it cannot be deleted or edited. If you need to reverse the entry you have to call up the same code and insert a minus quantity equivalent to the original entry.

April 2004

Thanks to Hassen Areff (Akson Electronics) we now have a extra labels template for 5 rows ten down labels - also introduced an extra line at the bottom of all labels that has creditors account number, document number, date and cost code. labels template can be emailed to you on request.

Now a totally new cash up assistant for your day end routines. You can create your own coinage options by editing \programs\cashup.txt . This routine allows you to cash up with accuracy all you have to do is insert what float you have in your till and all the various denominations of coins and notes. If your have cheques and credit card vouches all you do is insert how many you have and at insertion of value you insert each cheque value with a plus Eg 1000+2520+3280.20 - This all new cash up routine is intelligent enough to reconcile your cash on the fly . . You will not see such a cash up routine EVER !!!

To Excel export now group name and catalogue added (Thanks to Jeep outlets and Bobs)

Bug on Exempt document fixed (Thanks to Moosa's)

Thanks to Yusuf at Impex(Botswana) we were able to trace a windows typematic error when using second selling prices [2 or [3 etc linked to accounts. This only occurred when someone processes an entry at .10th of a second, we have now bypassed keyboard buffers to ensure that no matter how fast you may type each key will be processed.

Now CompuByte supports all windows environments including ME (Millinium) see parameter 163.

(Pressing Esc takes you back to what you were last doing). All you have to do is insert the pictures in a directory called \jpegs

This powerful feature now allows you to scan full catalogues product specifications etc to the \jpegs directory and view as needed . .You can also use wild card characters so that you can link multiple pictures to one stock item - Eg. Filter z84 >z8* will show all pictures that are labeled with z8. When you press the f3 function key it will display the 1st picture by pressing enter you will see the next picture, you can also just press Y to create a presentation of pictures.

(Important when you save the file make sure you have no .txt extension - insert a point/ check with explorer to ensure that the file has no extension) using notepad in line one of the file you can insert : Model line two you can insert Serial no: etc etc . . and line that starts with a greater than sign (>) will be a comment on the document- In this way you can also create a file for laybyes(deposit) D16 with just one line in it starting with a greater than sign (>) stating the following:- >LayByes not collected in three months will be sold.. Each document can have its own file .
Files that can be created are :-
D1. - Invoicing

Eg : Code 1-1 has this in description: Case of 12 Cokes cans = 12
Code 1-2 has this in description: Case of 6 Coke cans = 6
Parameters field has: [>1-1
Please make sure you have the square bracket i.e [

Code 1-3 has this description: Single Coke Can =1
Parameters field has: [>1-2

When there is no single cans, the program will take 6 cans from code 1-2, when 6 cans are out of stock the program will take 12 units out of code 1-1 and divide that by 6 to replenish stock.
