Subject: RE: Releasing Subsitute Part to a Job

You should be able to issue the 5 IBM's to the Western Digital material
sequence with no problem. From experience (at least on 3.0) the part number
you are issuing does not need to match the part number in the material
sequence on the job you are issuing it to.

Chris



- My question is:
We have released a job to build 50 computers, we purchase a Western
Digitial Drive(on the BOM), with a IBM Hard Drive as a sub. part(Not on
the BOM). I have 45 WD Hard Drives in stock which I can release to
manufacturing, and I want to use 5 IBM Hard drive to complete this job.

How do I release them to the job??

Subject: Issue with Crystal Reports

OK.. I was asked if I could include the planner on the Job Traveller.
Realizing that the Jobhead table was part of the report, I figured adding in
the PersonID would be no problem. This field does exist in the table. Yet
in Crystal, why can I not insert the field.. it is not on the list of fields
under the Jobhead table. Is my thinking off or does Crystal not work the
way I was told in that as long as the table is there in the report, you can
grab that field.. please advise.

Greg

Subject: RE: Issue with Crystal Reports

Crystal DOES work so that if you add a table through ODBC, than all fields
are available to you.

HOWEVER, since the report you are looking at was written by Epicor, and is
therefore not using ODBC, the only fields supplied with the report are the
fields that Epicor used in the report. I don't know the mechanics of it,
but they export the tables with the fields they need for the report to some
sort of temporary file so that the fields can be grabbed by crystal without
using ODBC. Therefore, you are correct in that you can not simply add any
field to the report that is in one of the tables that is used in the report.

There are ways to add the table and field through ODBC, but this gets messy
because the report now will require ODBC to run it.

By the way:

The rumor I heard was that Epicor will release ALL of their reports in
Crystal with a future (next?) release so that all users may modify to
their heart's content. I hope this is a true statement. I heard it
from an Epicor Support person of some stature...

Subject: Plant floor data collection tracking

Every TT5 used for plant floor data collection has a unique unit ID.
Does anyone know if that ID is reported anywhere? Our plant manager wants to
know which units get used the most, and which get used the least (so we
could relocate them if prudent). I've searched the data dictionary to no
avail. Has anyone else done this?

We are on Vantage 3.00.632 Progress 8.3A. When entering mass shipments and
tell the system what quantities to ship from inventory not all lines are
being created on the packing slip. Usually it is the last line that doesn't
get created. Have to then add that line to the packing slip. Anyone else
running into the same problem?

Subject: Printing Report Error

Trying to print a job traveler and getting "Error code 997". Job was just
entered today and have been entering and printing jobs without any problems.
The jobs before and after this job# printed fine. Even flagged this job as a
template and created a new job but still got the error message. Anyone have
any ideas what may have caused this? Solution was to start from scratch and
re-enter all the information. Thankfully it was only a single assembly with
a few operations and very much detail. We are on Vantage 3.00.632 Progress
8.3A.

Subject: Crystal Reports - Page Numbers

Crystal Reports has the ability to put page x of y on
a report. The problem is, it counts all pages in a print
run. For example, if you print a range or travelers it
will count all the pages in the print run.

Does anyone know how to reset that counter so it starts
counting over when the next traveler start printing.
If would be triggered by the job number.


Thanks,

Dave Cole

Subject: RE: Crystal Reports - Page Numbers

Dave, there are several ways to do this, unfortunately I have to run out the
door right now. The easiest to describe would be to open the crystal
traveler form and move the fields into the Job group section (I think it's
Group Header 1 in the traveler). This should reset them for that group,
which would be each traveler since it's sorted by group. Also, if that
group is set to be hidden, you will have to change that to make it visible.

Subject: A/R credit memo application

My A/R person is asking about credit memo application procedures. The
Vantage 3.0 help screen for the ref invoice number field on a credit memo
says that credit memo can be applied directly in cash receipts. Her question
is if we have invoice 123 and credit memo 456cm, how do we apply 456cm
against 123 in the cash receipt screen? And will it then show on the group
edit list? We current use the apply credit memo function. I am told that she
can not reference the customer check number that the credit is being taken
on. And that the only place the transaction appears is on a G/L
distributions report. She also does not like the fact that she has to back
out of cash receipts and go into apply credit memo function. Does anybody
have a Crystal report for customer statements that shows adjusted balance
due per invoice? We would like the amount shown on the statement to actually
reflect what is still open and due. (partial payments)

Thanks

Subject: Vantage Upgrade / drive mappings

We will be upgrading our 3.0 to 4.0 this weekend. While going over
the
instructions on Upgrading from an existing application, it says you
must map drive letters to your current \dwc share and a new letter to
the new \epicor share. And these letters must match what is on the
clients. This basically means we must create a new drive letter (W:
for instance) on the clients in addition to the current letter (V:).
Is there any way around this? We had a hard enough time coming up
with
a letter that all of the clients had available, now we need another?
I
called Vantage support and they said we need to map a new drive
letter. Anybody run into this? Any help would be appreciated.

Wow, I just looked at the stock Check Register report, and the stupid thing
doesn't show the check's status?! Silly omission.

Maybe someone has one handy, but seriously, if you haven't gotten your feet
wet in Report Builder, this would be a real easy one to learn on. No
joins, even. Look at CheckHed in the Data Dictionary Viewer.
