RMS Inventory Issues

One of our clients is having issues with inventory. They will
frequently have items with wrong quantities in their system. Theft is
most likely not the issue since some of the items missing are large,
conspicuous items like mags of wine or 30 packs of beer. Every single
time, the amount of sales and the amount incoming will add up, but
they will still be short in the store. They are running RMS with SP3.

They are also having issues with suppliers not "sticking" to items.
They have to re-add the supplier several times before it stays linked.

Wierd Mail Flow Issue
I hope someone else is experiencing this problem. My mail E2K3 system irvingisd.net is doing great. It's fast and efficient, we are using eSafe for spam blocking. My outside DNS has all the right stuff, www.dnsreport.com says we rock. www.dnsstuff.com has no complaints. I've even put in Sender Policy Framework (SPF) as wide open as I can in DNS. I should be trouble free. Some (not all) external mail programs can't get to us. Ocassionally AOL choaks on an email but works the next time. I created an account with www.care2.com, because that is the one the boss bitched ...

Connection Issue with Outlook, being prompted with a logon screen
Recently some newly created users are not able to acces Exchange (2003 sp2) with Outlook (2003). These users are prompted with a generic logon screen. After entering in their username and password several times the user is still prompted with the same logon screen. I tried logging in as administrator with no luck (using both administrator and domain\administrator). The user can log into WebAccess with no issues, just Outlook. I did notice something similiar when trying to run the Outlook TZMove.exe utility. The administrator for many accounts (but not all) is prompted with the login...

Trying to update data in RMS with a web interface
My project is much more complicated, but I am hoping someone can give me some generic tips and/or code to assist me. I want to update a field in RMS with some data the cashier inputs on an HTML form. For example, if a cashier selects a customer using F7, I want them to press a custom button that brings up an HTML window. That html file will have a form where the cashier will enter some text in a textbox. When the cashier presses Submit, the text in the textbox will be written to the Customer.CustomText1 field. The two major issues are 1) how to pass the Customer.ID to the HTML window ...

Category Issue
Hi Folks! I have a loan that I set up in Money 2004. I set up a budget that takes in account what amount I spend to service the loan each month. The category that the budget function in Money uses is called "Loan: xyz." Okay, after doing that I thought everything was fine and dandy. However, here is the problem: I pay my loan using my checking account. When an entry is made to pay my loan the category that I'm using is "Transfer: Loan: xyz." The problem is, how does the budget know that I have paid the loan when my checking entry is using the "Trans...

Inventory Valuation and Location Records
All: Its been awhile since I had to deploy Inventory so I need a quick refresher on Valuation Methods and their intersection with Location Codes. If I remember correctly, Average Perpetual tracks costs at the item level, with such average being applied across all sites. FIFO and LIFO (Periodic or Perpetual) all track at the Site and Item level. Is this correct? I tried to find this in the manual, but it is less than clear. Thanks, Dwight -- ...

RMS 2.0 and PC Charge
Is anyone using PC Charge Pro with RMS 2.0? I haven't been able to get any answers from Verifone as to certification with RMS 2.0. Does PC Charge Pro support the AVS function in RMS or does it do it itself? I'm changing Merchants and the new one requires using PC Charge Pro. Thanks, TomT Funny thing...

Excel graphing and equation issues
Okay so here is my problem. For work, I have a curve that I need to put into excel and find the equation. So I look at the curve and record data points from the curve into excel. I will then graph the points and it will produce a curve just like the one have on paper. My problem comes when I ask excel to produce equations for the curves. The equations it produces do not match the curves when I enter a value into the equation. Why does this happen or how can I fix it? Make sure you start with an XY chart, not a line chart. Then make sure the equation has enough digits, so apply ...

What is the correct way to STOCK TAKE or 'Take Inventory'?
Yes, it's that time of year again, but this time we've got RMS, so the stock take will be a breeze I'm sure. But what is the correct/best way to do a stock take with RMS?? Thanks.

Microsoft RMS Integrated CC processing
I have a client who will charge their customers a deposit for a boat rental. Does RMS allow for an authorization to the credit card? Meaning- will it verify funds and authorize that amount, but not actually transact that amount until requested at the POS? My thought is that this will not work. On a ZON machine- you can press a button that allows for a transaction to be authorized, or charged, and I dont know of a way this would work with the credit card integration. How would you suggest deposit transactions in RMS? Thanks, Andrea Andrea, Can't do it within RMS. Maybe with TPI ...

Weird query issue
I'm working on a query which calculates a paycheck witholding amount. I take the employees desired yearly contribution and divide it by the number of paychecks in a year, in our case, that's 26. This gives me the amount that needs to be witheld from each paycheck, provided the employee in question was employeed at the first of the year. Depending on how I write the expression in the query, I get 2 different numbers. Examples of the field expression in question follow: Bi-Weekly: ([curContrib]/[Weeks]) This gives me the wrong result, even if Weeks = 26. Bi-Weekly: ([curCo...
