SECTION 188.8.131.52 - PRINT PICKING SLIPS
USAGE: To print a batch of Picking Slips from the Sales Order file.
Note: This program specifically ignores any orders that are complete and the option will not be available if the print Picking Slips option is disabled in SYSTEM DEFAULTS (see SECTION 7.1.2.)
DISCUSSION: When you choose this option, the following questions will appear:
The following question asks you to enter both a lower and upper limit. The upper limit must not be less than the lower limit. The default answers define the extreme limits of the field. You do not have to change all of these limits. Only change the ones you wish to, and tab past the others.
DEBTOR CODE RANGE This is the Debtor’s code.
INVENTORY CODE RANGE This is allows you to print only orders for a range of Inventory codes.
DUE DATE RANGE This allows you to limit the report to a range of Due Dates, eg to list only back-orders, enter 01/01/0001 for the lower limit and yesterday’s date for the upper limit.
ORDER DATE RANGE This allows you to limit the report to a range of date’s ordered. This can be used to find a lost order or to organise deliveries in batches.
SALESMAN RANGE This is the salesman code as it appears on the transaction-file (not the Debtor master-file).
OTHER KEY RANGE This may appear as a different literal depending on how you have defined the field in SYSTEM PARAMETERS.
REFERENCE RANGE This reference number, i.e. Order number.
To start the report, press <Enter> through each field or simply press <F10>.
HiFinance will scan the Sales Order file looking for active orders within the range you have specified. For each hit, a Picking Slip will be printed. If you press <ESC> at any time, the reporting function will terminate immediately. To restart, you will need to run the function again, starting from the first unprinted Debtor.
