Re: Serious DB error

I googled the problem and realised that this is a common problem when a .mdb file of Access 2003 is opened with Access 2007. I'll try to delete whatever VBA there is in there.

Serious DB error

My DB file in unreadable. I'm getting this error when I try to open the .mdb file directly. I cannot open it in Abacre. The Database cannot be opened because the VBA project contained in it cannot be read. The database can be opened only if the VBA project is first deleted. Deleting the VBA project ...

Re: Inventory Change Types

"The field sdate was not updated. We corrected it. It will be available in next minor version."

Is this correction available yet?

Re: Inventory Change Types

Is there any way to see when a change to the InvChange table has occured? There's a field called sdate, but it's empty.

I would like to do monthly statistics based on this.

Fresh MDB file for new month/Year

I want to start every month with a new MDB file, but with all items and stock records transferred. First I tried to delete all orders in the POS, but that affected Inventory (sold items were put back on the shelves). I then tried to delete all orders in the database file, and it seems to be successf...

Re: End of day problems/open orders

erlee - if you suspect that someone is cheating the system, then look in the InvChange table in the database file. Here you'll find changetype indicating what has been done to the inventory. What I see as a flaw is that staff can steal an item and deduct it from inentory, if they have Admin status. ...

Change price

I'm looking for a way to see how often staff has used the "Change price" option. How does that appear in the database file? I've looked for it but haven't been able to find it. In general, it would be great with direct reports on all ways staff could potentially mingle with the system. It's nessecar...

End of day problems/open orders

Sometimes got problems that we cannot reconsile when z-closing as the system claims that there are open orders. Sometimes there is an order that had an item added and then removed. To close this one we've set up a "dummy" item at the price of $0. Any smarter way to close an undesired order? A few ti...

An extra license

I would like to aquire a 3rd license, but I need it to be V 2.7 so that it shares the same MDB file as the 2 other terminals. If I buy one more, can I activate 2.7 or would it only work with V. 3?

Cash drawer problem

My cash drawer doesn't work. It's connected to the printer and is supposed to open whenever a slip is printed. It used to work and still works if I print from a Word document, so it seems to be a POS problem. Any suggestions?

Re: Inventory Change Types

Thanks a lot. This helps to look into a few things.

I realised that "6" has meddled with our stock count, could be myself :) I would love to be able to disable te functions we don't need. Less functions, less errors. That's just a suggestion for coming versions.

Inventory Change Types

I've looked into the Access file behind the software, and I found that all inventory changes are found in the table InvChange. This is a quite interesting information. Each change carry in identity, "changetype", and I've identified the following: 0: Adjusted Inventory Upward 1: Delete order 3: Rece...
