Introduction to Documents in the Stock Locations Value Pack

The Stock Locations Value Pack adds one document to the Stock module. Use the [Select Module] button in the Master Control panel to ensure you are in this module and then select 'Documents' from the File menu or click the [Documents] button, also in the Master Control panel. Then, double-click the appropriate item in the list. A specification window will then appear, where you can decide the Stock Movements that you want to be printed. Click [Run] to print the documents.

It is often possible to report on a selection range, such as a range of Stock Movements. To do this, enter the lowest and highest values of the range, separated by a colon. For example, to print Stock Movements 001 to 010, enter "001:010" in the Stock Movement Number field. Depending on the field, the sort used might be alpha or numeric. In the case of an alpha sort, a range of 1:2 would also include 100, 10109, etc.

To determine the Form that will be used when you print a document, follow this procedure (when FirstOffice is supplied, a sample Form will be printed):

  1. Design a Form (or change the sample Form supplied to reflect your own requirements) using the Form register in the System module. This process is fully described here.

  2. Change to the Stock module and open the 'Documents' list window using the 'Documents' item on the File menu or by clicking the [Documents] button in the Master Control panel.

  3. Highlight the item in the list and select 'Define Document' from the Operations menu. In the subsequent window, assign a Form (or more than one Form) to the document: this window is fully described here.

  4. You only need use the 'Define Document' function once. Afterwards, Form selection will be automatic.
