HiFinance 4




USAGE: To print a list of Creditor Purchase Orders.


DISCUSSION: When you choose this option, the screen will appear as follows:



Here you can choose the order in which you wish to print the report.


Hint: If you intend to limit the report to a range of transactions, it is most efficient to print the report in the same order. Eg if you wish to limit the report to a range of dates, the report will scan the transaction-file faster if you also print the report in date order.


If you choose to print in Inventory Code order, only Inventory lines will be included in the report.


Having chosen from the options, the following questions will appear:


USE LONG FORMAT REPORT     If you are using wide stationery, reply Y, otherwise reply N. This question will only be displayed if the relevant option is set to A, see SECTION 7.1.2.


If you have chosen to print the report in Creditor or date order, you will be offered this option. If you reply Y, HiFinance will start a new page each time the major key changes. A sub-total will also be printed for each group of transactions. If you reply N, the transactions will be printed continuously.


PRINT COMPLETED ORDERS  Normally you would want to exclude completed orders from the report unless you specifically wish to just list completed orders. In either case, reply Y or N, as required.


PRINT UNCOMPLETED ORDERS            The default answer to this question is Y, but if you wish to print completed orders only, rely N.


PRINT COMPLETED LINES   When you update an Order to an Invoice, HiFinance tags lines as completed when you invoice at least as much as has been ordered. If you wish to have these completed lines included in the report, reply Y. Note that choosing N for COMPLETED ORDERS (above) overrides this option.


PRINT UNCOMPLETED LINES This option is similar to the previous question except that it refers to uncompleted lines. Again you should note that choosing N for COMPLETED ORDERS (above) overrides this option.


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.


CREDITOR CODE RANGE This is the Creditor’s code.


INVENTORY CODE RANGE          This is allows you to print only orders for a range of Inventory codes. This field will not limit General Ledger or Job lines.


EXPECTED DATE RANGE This allows you to limit the report to a range of Expected 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.


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, ie Order number.


To start the report, press <Enter> through each field or simply press <F10>.


The report will scan the transaction file and extract all records that fit within your chosen parameters. The report itself will detail the Creditor code and name, Other key, reference number, date ordered and date due. Then for each line on the order, the report will detail the Inventory code and description, the units ordered, left to deliver and the value of the units left to deliver. The total outstanding value is subtotalled by sort key and a grand total is also printed at the end of the report.
