SECTION 220.127.116.11W.7 – EXPORT BY DAY
USAGE: To create summarize by delivery area (other-key-no1) and assign deliveries to a day, so that a batch can be assigned a reasonable delivery schedule. The export can be to ASCII.
DISCUSSION: This program scans for all Orders in a Batch and dissects them for stock codes and components. It then asks you to dissect the information.
When you choose this report, the screen will appear as follows:
The fields available are:
WHICH BATCH NUMBER Choose a Batch number to process. You must already know which Batch you are working on, before you enter the program.
LIMIT EXPORT TO UNCOMPLETED LINES ON UNCOMPLETED ORDERS You can choose to limit the export to just orders that have not been completed.
When you have chosen the above options, HiFinance will scan through the orders file, sort the information and display the following screen:
This screen displays each delivery run with its order value. Here you assign a day to each delivery run. This allows you to spread out the value over the whole week, thus improving cash flow.
When you have assigned a day to each delivery run, press <F10> to continue and the screen will change to the following:
This screen allows you to assign the orders at a much finer level. The day totals are displayed at the bottom of the screen so that you can see exactly how much, in dollar terms, is to be delivered on each day.
When you have completed your entries, press <F10>. HiFinance will then create a file called assembly.csv and place it in your data directory. This file will detail all the information required for exporting to a spreadsheet and scheduling the transport vehicles.
