What’s new in SAMCO Power Accounting

Current Release 35.200 (14.07) 
Oct 05 2021

*DX The D/X customer item translation menu has a new option for copying customer item records from the I/C customer item file, into the D/X customer item file.

*DX The F2 option in the custom number field, for copying all the customer items from one customer to another, now has a prompt notifying the user that the option is available.

*OE Form printing in Billing could, in rare circumstances, get a different discount amount on the line item (by one cent, due to rounding) than the posting would. This has been corrected.

*PC Printing current/historical T4 and releve 1 functions have been enhanced so that when using eSend, or if the samco option for pdf archiving is enabled, the printing happens in separate passes. This way the T4s can, if need be, go to a single PDF file for printing to any printer, such as a GDI printer.

*SF All modules will now, when a form is printed, create a pdf copy in the appropriate archive file for that module, so that the new reprint option in the reports menu will be able to find and print the archived copy of the form. Note: If the form is designed to go on a pre-printed document, the archive copy will not have any literals included to help determine which fields are which values. Documents include invoices, picking tickets, quotes, A/R statements, A/P checks, payroll checks, purchase orders and receivers.

Sep 13 2021

*AP In Accounts Payable, selected vouchers paid by online payment and posted in the "Record online payment" function would have blank check dates in the vendor history file. This has been corrected.

*AR The cash application alternate entry screen has been enhanced so that once the balance goes down to zero, the next use of the F1 key will warn the user that continuing would make the balance negative, and require a supervisor override to allow it.

*AR In the A/R View customer account screen, unposted pre-authorized payments are now included in the list of transactions.

*DX The find D/X customers window function for filtering would not find anything based on customer name or address. This has been corrected.

*GL The trial balance report would reset the beginning balance amounts to zero for the profit and loss accounts when running the report for a 2nd year without having closed the first year yet. This has been corrected.

*IC Inventory Transaction Registers were not displaying enhanced locations properly for transfers. This has been corrected.

*OE The invoice history purge function would redisplay the selected customer number with leading zeroes, if the entered number was alphabetic. This has been corrected.

*OE The invoice history report that prints by invoice# has been enhanced to be more efficient when specific selection values (not just first/last, earliest/latest) are used.

*OE Samco option CS2632 would not allow the notification list of user ids to be reset to empty after there was at least one set. This has been corrected.

*OE The picking ticket function could, during housekeeping functions, reset the original quote/rma number to zero if it was not numeric. This has been corrected.

Jul 23 2021

*AP The funds transfer file create could, as of 14.07.35.196, use the wrong value for the 80 characters indicator in the royal bank qualifier record that goes at the front of the file. This has been corrected.

*CM The contact maintenance screen would, when the samco option 2416 is on and a document-send flag is set to fax only, say email instead. This has been corrected.

*OE Samco option 1723, to reserve po quantity for specific orders, would not show a negative sign if the quantity available (or quantity reserved) was negative. This has been corrected.

*OE The order packing function, samco option 1195, would fail to update the item and status commit/backorder quantity fields if the quantity to ship was changed for the order's line item. This has been corrected.

*OE In O/E Till setup, a card processor field has been added. If it is set, credit card processing will use the till's assigned card processor,  overriding the default.

*PA The six week item history report has been enhanced to check if thecurrent year is different from today's year. If so, and a calendar has not been set up yet for today's year, then a warning message will  appear.

*PA When printing P/A receiving or transfer forms, serialized items’ serial numbers were not printed. This has been corrected.

*PA P/A Transfers would not allow entry of serial numbers for serialized items, stating that the serial number was already in stock. This has been corrected.

*RW The immediate invoice print window would treat a received on account order not as an invoice, so the samco option 2416 for esend flags on contacts would ignore the invoice flag. This has been corrected. 

*RW The extended functions for fax and email would show an error about a recursive call, when one was used and then the other was used without exiting the first window. This has been corrected.

*RW The gui drop-down help menu has a new option for "Remote support". This will download and launch the provided copy of the SplashtopSOS program so that a samco Technician can connect to your workstation and help with whatever services you need.

*RW The user maintenance could, with the right samco option enabled, get a fatal file error message when trying to add a new user. This has been corrected.

Current Release 35.196 (14.07) 
Jun 17 2021

Includes the July 2021 Payroll update.

*AP The funds transfer file creation has been enhanced to include the royal bank qualifier record at the front of the CPA format file, when that flag is set in the cash account settings.

*AR The cash transaction lower screen where application of the cash takes place would, as of 14.07.35.195, treat the lower field tag numbers as if they were 1 to 4, instead of 10 to 13. This has been corrected.

*OE In Billing, PDF archive phase of form printing, the page count is not getting initialized. This has been corrected.

*OE In Billing, Orders, Consolidate orders, a routine to precalculate the resulting line items count was added. If the resulting line items count exceeds 979, a message is displayed and the consolidation is canceled.

*OE The rapid entry and retail entry screens have been enhanced to add the F7=History option to quantity and price fields of the line item. The item number field also has the option, but only if the line has already
been added.

*PA The view received P.O. history screen option to view header information when the F6 key is pressed, would not display the drop ship information as if it was an oddly laid out comment. This has been corrected.

Current Release 35.195 (14.07) 
Jun 01 2021

*AP In AP, when voiding a prepayment quick check a second time, the system failed to locate the record. This has been corrected.

*AR The cash application screen will display a message when the document specified has an atypical balance. This message has been improved to be more specific about what the document type is and why the balance is not normal.

*AR The cash application screen's F5 window for specifying which documents (apply-to numbers, actually) should be paid, would, if the running balance went negative, use that negative balance when the F1 key was used for default amount to pay an invoice, when it should have just used the invoice amount. This has been corrected.

*AR The cash application screen's F5 window for specifying which documents (apply-to numbers, actually) should be paid has been enhanced so that if there is an open credit, and it has a positive balance, a message comes up explaining that this is unusual (atypical) for open credits and there are no funds available to be redistributed to invoices.

*AR The cash application screen's F5 window for specifying which documents (apply-to numbers, actually) should be paid has been enhanced so that when "paying" a payment, the "payment" has to be the same sign as the document balance. Normal payments require a negative "pay-amt” so that their funds can go into the running balance and be used to pay something with a postive balance (invoices usually). While a payment with a postive balance needs to be paid down like an invoice, so it now requires a postive "pay-amt" like an invoice does.

*AR The forms maintenance test feature has been enhanced so that when using always mounted forms with the samco esend feature for single pass printing (CS2227), the test will ask for which printer to print to instead of assuming the mounted printer.

*AR The view customer account/history screen could get an error 94,20 on the INVHIS file, if the system had the O/E programs available but has only P/I data in the current company, and the user hits F4 to see invoice
detail. This has been corrected.

*AR The statement printing has been enhanced to ask for a printer# when doing test prints from forms maintenance, even when the control file says forms are always mounted and has a pre-set printer entered.

*AR The history/statement printing would fail, when the customer range was set to a single customer, and trying to esend when the paper printer was set to the same printer as the esend printer. This has been corrected.

*AR The statement/history selection has been enhanced so that when using esend, the paper printer field enforces picking a paper printer and  the esend printer field enforces picking an esend printer. You can only  pick any type of printer when the other media type is set to "skip” those customers.

*GL In GL, when printing a historical financial statement with CS2453 enabled,  the Retained earnings would show wrong amount. This has been corrected.

*IC Item maintenance would, for an item that has no product number, do nothing when attempting to use the Shift-F5 key to jump to the vendor item screen. It will now explain that the item needs a product number.

*IC The inventory recalc function has been enhanced to allow use of the P for pdf printer.

*IC The inventory recalc function would use the previous item# when reporting a problem with the serial count. This has been corrected.

*OE Billing's control information screen has added a new flag, if you are using samco option 2319, which asks when you want to use the customer form: when eSending only, when printing paper only, or for both.

*OE The invoice print could, with samco option 2319 turned on, remember the contacts specified in the last form print if the last print was cancelled. This has been corrected.

*PS The ticket entry could take a ticket off hold, and if it was put on hold by another screen, and that screen still had the print options showing, then taking the ticket off hold would not have any line items. This has been corrected, and a message added to indicate when a ticket is still in the process of being put on hold.

*RW The print functions would still use the term "fax" when referring to the esend feature. This has been corrected.

*RW The gui interface would, as of 14.07.35.192, display the startup screen momentarily when exiting the software. This has been corrected.

*AP In AP, Open item history, an option to include items past the aging date has been added.

*DX 850 import has been enhanced to check D/X customer record for  partner id to see if this partner is in test mode.

*DX 850 import would use the D/X customer separator characters even when the override flag was set to no. This has been corrected.

*DX The order export has been enhanced so that if the document is using X12 format, it will create an entry for that document (ASN, Invoice) in the X12 acknowledgement log, for later 997 documents to update with accept
or reject status.

*IC Item maintenance could get a 94,20 error on the PAVITF file when setting  a product number to blank, if the item had a prime vendor set but not using vendor items. This has been corrected.

*IC The status maintenance has been enhanced so that if the primary location code is changed, it will be pushed into all O/E line item records so that their picking tickets can sort correctly when sorting by location code, instead of referencing the old location from when the line was added.

*OE A new flag to print batch invoices in one PDF or individual PDF file has been added.

*OE The label copy could, as of level 14.07.35.051, fail to copy the specified label format. This has been corrected.

*OE The samco feature for order status can be set in the user defined form, so the order status changes when you print the form. This status can be different between order types. The auto-copy feature would overwrite the status of the other types, when a change was made in the body of  the form. This has been corrected.

*OE The order entry could get into a record in use message about the station file that would not go away, when using station order numbers and the samco option for tracking deleted orders was RM:in use. This has been corrected.

*OE The packing label template feature was enhanced to add %PROSHIPNO% and %CUSTDEPT% fields.

*PA The immediate form print feature for transfer printing could leave the message "Form XXXXX requires a printer id" on the screen overlapping with screen prompts in a gui environment. This has been corrected.

*RW The gui screen drop down menu for I/C reports would go to the wrong report for some entries. This has been corrected.

*RW The print functions would print dashed lines for the headers instead of printing unbroken horizontal lines, even when the printer supports the horizontal line. This has been corrected.

*RW The gui screen interface would, with field mode turned off, insert a carriage return after each character when pasting from the clipboard. This has been corrected.

*RW The user maintenance field for default printer has been enhanced to allow P for pdf as one of the options.

*AR The statement printing, when samco option 2618 is enabled, will have an option to include P/I invoices/credit memo with the statement when emailing to a customer.

*DX The extended D/X import for edi 850 documents, would (when trying to process a segment) try to process the segment field, even if the “If" segment is false. This has been corrected.

*RW The main eSend function has been enhanced to support the ability to merge extra pdf files into the one pdf file created from the report (or form) being printed.

*PC The report menu function for reprint of archived forms (samco option 2488) would only allow access if the user record specified ability to print checks, not for any of the other forms. This has been corrected.

*PI The P/I invoice print would, when the samco option 2488 is on, only create the archive if the print was to the eSend printer. This has been corrected.

*PI The P/I quote print would, when the samco option 2488 is on, only create the archive if the print was to the eSend printer. This has been corrected.

*SA The Sales Analysis User Defined report, when the item qty on hand samco option is in use, items that do not have sales in a specified period will will also be included in that report.

*PC The releve 1 master for the 20EMP form would show the maximum value in the QPIP box even if the maximum had not been reached. This has been corrected.

*AP The manual payments edit list/register could show prepayment applications as manual checks if they were in the same batch for the same vendor as a manual check. This has been corrected.

*AP The A/P comparison to GL has been enhanced to hide records that balance by date when sorted by date.

*AP The Change vendor number utility now logs the number change for tracking purposes.

*AP The AP transaction entry has been enhanced so that when entering a check, whether a quick check, a prepayment or a non-ap check, the history will be reviewed to see if this check# (with this date and cash account) has already been used. If so, a message appears notifying about this. This is a protected message so hitting enter will take the user back to the entry when adding (or undo the last change, when changing existing data) so that the values can be made unique. If the F2 key is used, then the duplicate information will be allowed.

*AP The void check function will now show the vendor number associated with the specified check. If there is more than one vendor, ie more than one check, screen will ask for which vendor's check to void. The vendor number can be set to All in order to get the old behaviour, where the check is treated as one check, despite multiple vendors, and all the vouchers are reinstated.

*AP The check register, view by check number, view vendor invoices, and vendor history report would show the document type for a voided online payment as an online payment. This has been corrected.

*AR The A/R comparison to GL has been enhanced to hide records that balance by date when sorted by date.

*GL In G/L, File utilities, an option was added to ensure the GL Reference field matches the customer or vendor number.

*IC The change item number utility now logs the number change for tracking purposes.

*IC The find item functions options for showing order detail and for showing purchase order detail have been enhanced to check the extended functions menu password for the same functions. If they are disabled in the
extended functions, then they will be disabled in the find item window as well.

*IC The P/A forms print field for "item bar code" has been enhanced to be aware of samco option 2239, which allows setting a print flag on a specific barcode, so it will print rather than simply the first one in the table.

*IC The inventory register would print the transactions from all users, even though post by user was enabled, when posting was started from the P/A module. This has been corrected.

*IC The I/C Valuation report would, if the new item cost history file is in use, use the posting date to determine the cost instead of the document date. This has been corrected.

*OE Samco option 2605, for transport codes, would not carry the transport code and settings forward when samco option 2535 for linked items is also used to automatically create a 2nd line item. This has been
corrected.

*OE The immediate invoice print window will now appear if the esend printer cannot be set, due to forms in the chain all having their embedded printers pre-set.

*OE The immediate invoice print window would, when the change printer option was chosen for a second time, default back to the master default, rather than the value chosen the first time. This has been corrected.

*OE In the Orders line item entry screen an in-transfer qty field has been  added.

*OE The O/E forms print added a field for "Item bar code (dflt)" which is aware of samco option 2239, which allows setting a print flag on a  specific barcode, so it will print that one rather than simply the first one in the table. With the option off, it WILL print the first barcode.  

*OE The invoice print would (as of level 14.07.35.190), when sending ROA documents or credit memos via eSend, use the order number instead of the invoice number in the email/fax header. This has been corrected.

*OE The invoice print would ask for esend information, even if the esend printer had been changed to a normal printer. This has been corrected.

*PA The P/A forms print field for "item bar code" has been enhanced to be aware of samco option 2239, which allows setting a print flag on a specific barcode, so it will print that one rather than simply the first one in the table.

*PA The Purchasing Open transfer report can now use the export printer.

*PI In Professional Invoicing, invoices can now be emailed to a customer.

*RW The system could, in some text entry boxes, when the Esc key was pressed and the choice box came up to restart or continue, ignore the choice and restart anyway. This has been corrected.

*RW User maintenance could get an error 94,20 on the WHSFIL.DAT file if the inventory module is not turned on in the company. This has been corrected.

This has been corrected.

*PS The ticket entry lookup of orders and layaways would, when trying to search by name, and the on-disk name had lower-case letters, fail to find the ticket by the name. This has been corrected.

Jan 25 2021

*AP The quick check entry screen that asks for cash account, check number, etc, would display the "(none)" literal on the wrong line if the F1 key was used in the comment field. This has been corrected.

*AR The cash receipts application screen's "Alt entry screen" which shows a table of the outstanding open items, would increase the running balance in the amount remaining field every time the F1 feature for automatically setting the "amount to pay" was used on an open item that had already been marked to pay.

*IC The handheld physical count has been updated to help avoid conflicts with changes by other users.

*IC Samco option 2046, for load serial numbers, would not see the list of serial numbers for the current item, if the find feature ("?") was used in the serial number field. This has been corrected.

This has been corrected.

*PC The T4 and T4A printouts would, as of 14.07.35.189, print the other amounts with the wrong box number. The box number would be the number of the next other amount in the list. This has been corrected.

*RW The system could "overfill" a field, when pasting via the ctrl-v key or the edit menu, if the clipboard had more text than the field would normally allow. The field would drop the text once the enter key was used, but would look odd until then. This has been corrected.

*RW The system copy feature would, when copying from a field on the main underlying screen, while a pop-up window is showing, actually grab text from the screen line below where the selection box displays. This has 
been corrected.

printing a paper check, or using online payment.

*AR The cash application detail window would reset a manually entered discount amount back to the default (from terms) discount amount. This has been corrected.

*AR The cash application detail window has been enhanced so that the amount applied column now has an F2 option to allow resetting the discount back to default values. Also, an F5 option was added to that field so the discount window, with the allowance and reference, could be set before having to decide on the amount to apply, so the default amount (available via the F1 key) would include those amounts.

*PC Check register can now be printed to file, pdf, html and to screen when posting checks.

*RW The print functions have been enhanced so that if the user gets a "printer in use" message, then the name of the report the other user is printing is displayed in addition to their user id.

*RW The print function message for printer in use could have the input field occur inside the text of the message rather than after it. This has been corrected.

*RW The print screen function would act like a special form and try to get an exclusive lock on the device to prevent overlapping print. This has been changed to use normal report logic so it is just another print job in the spooler.

*GL In GL, financial statement print from history, from version 14.35.183, the GL transaction file is used to calculate the comparatives.

*IC Added new odbc table ICPHXFNC. It references the same data as the other ICPHXF tables, but instead of numeric quantity fields it has alpha fields, so they can be tested to see if they hold "*NULL*” as a value, indicating that the field has no count yet.

*AR The A/R distribution to G/L report would only allow one user at a time to run a report. This has been corrected.

*AR The sales posting could sometimes get a rounding error when processing foreign currency amounts and be off by one cent when the amount to round was exactly one half cent. This has been corrected.

but which were not included in the list.

*IC The dated price import has been enhanced to show the name of the file imported in the legend section of the import report.

*IC The Recalculate inventory quantity function could set the quantity commit incorrectly for serialized items when using in-transit warehouses. This has been corrected.

*OE The billing select screen for line item entry would, if the customer went over their credit limit and the user was viewing a line, allow the user to select the "cancel line" option without checking to see if a
customs document had been printed/generated, so a supervisor override was not asked for. This has been corrected.

*OE The orders enter screen for line item entry would, if the customer went over their credit limit and the user was viewing a line, allow the user to select the "cancel line" option without checking to see if a customs document had been printed/generated, so a supervisor override was not asked for. This has been corrected.

*OE The order/7512 recall screen has been enhanced so that instead of simply saying "duplicate record" when the order number was already in the submission list, it will now tell the user that the order# was already in the submission list and it would need to be retracted first. The submission screen has a similar change.

*OE The form printing has been enhanced to allow 200 feature codes rather than just 100 feature codes.

*OE The rapid entry screen could get "order in use by XXX" message when it really wasn't. This has been corrected.

*PA The transfer in screen would, when the in-transit warehouse was in use and the transfer out was deleted and the item had serial numbers attached to it, fail to put those serial numbers into the reversing
inventory transfer that is created to move the stock from the in-transit warehouse and back into the from warehouse. This has been corrected.

*RW The eSend feature for saving the last message in the faxmemo/LASTxxx.FAX file would leave the space in if the initials XXX were less than 3 characters, causing the system to be unable to find it afterwards. This has been corrected.

*RW The eSend feature for loading a memo has been enhanced to replace the
old creation date and time with the current date and time.

*AR The statement printing would only set the printed flag of the first payment open item, when a cash receipt is applied to multiple open items, and the statement criteria says to show the payment total rather
than all the apply detail. This has been corrected.

*BR The bank reconciliation screen has been changed so that void and stop payment records can now be "cleared" like regular documents. They  will remain in the list until cleared. Once cleared, they are attached
to that reconciliation date. The "*void*" mark (and the "*stop* mark)  have moved from the cleared-date column to the opposite amount column.

*CB The check for delayed so,97 report has been enhanced to distinguish between sent documents and pending documents.

void-check's date for the distribution date instead of the actual distribution date. This has been corrected

*IC Inventory Management The change item number function would rename/merge the item record in the middle with the other files instead of waiting until the end. This was a problem if the process got interrupted and had to be resumed, so the item file is now processed last.

*IC Inventory Management The item history function to adjust history from status has been changedto use the standard record counter logic instead of showing the item# and date of the transactions currently being processed, as this is more efficient.

*IC Inventory Management The Price list in Inventory now allows you to specify to show items that are active or inactive only.

*IC Inventory Management The inventory posting could skip adjustment transactions created by the billing module and they would have to be posted separately. This has been corrected.

still giving feeback about progress.

*IC The item maintenance would not allow a supplier number be the same as the item number, even though it is common to use a supplier's part number as one's own. This has been corrected.

*OE The line item entry could set the quantity committed wrong if the item was lot controlled, and the option inside the lot allocation window was used for changing the line quantities, then after the line was finished the user pressed F5 to select a line. This has been corrected.

*OE The billing posting would allow the selection of an eSend printer as the device to send reports to, but it would ask for the eSend information multiple times, allowing the user to tab out without specifying designation information, and causing the reports to be lost. This has been Changed - The eSend printer option has been removed from the selection  window for the billing option for Post Invoices.
