New Enhancements recently
- Inquiry into the inventory
file by price class. This should be helpful when working on revising your
price matrix or Trade Service Vendor Options. Instead of having to run a
WFL/IN/IMBOOK/CLASS you can now inquire on-line. This inquiry also gives
you the option of listing the Trade Service values for prices, etc. under
- The month-ending inventory
value for each item is now stored in the database. This will subsequently
be used to improve the average inventory value calculation on various reports
A new inquiry is available that will show you the history of file maintenance
changes to an item. For example, you could use this inquiry if you wanted
to see what the changes have been to the replacement cost over time. Sometimes
the question comes up, "What was the resale pricing, cost, vendor quote,
promo pricing, etc. that was in effect at the time of a transaction?"
