When you start the program, 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.
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 Orders file and extract all records that fit within your chosen parameters. The report itself will detail the Creditor code and Inventory Code. Then it will detail the Order Numbers (Our ref and Their Ref), the expected date and the expected quantity.
