Interesting issue?

Hello,
I have my system set up to scan barcodes on 
products...but if for whatever reason the product does 
not scan, or the price is set up incorrectly, I also set 
up a key "0" then enter, and that prompts them for an 
amount, basically so they can ring in the price and 
everything is fine.  Well, I also recently learned that 
you can enter in a negative number, and it works just 
fine, so even though the cashier is not allowed to adjust 
the pricing, or give disounts, they can ring up an item 
press 0 then enter, and basically reduce the price...the 
only way I would know is to run a report and look through 
basically all of the transactions...is there a way to set 
up the system, so that they can't enter a negative 
amount?  An example of what they can do is scan a pack of 
smokes for say $4.00 then press 0 enter, and -$3.00 now 
the total is set to $1.00 and that is how much they 
charge the customer...how can I put a stop to this, 
before it starts?
Thank You,
Vince

Vince,

Try setting the cashier's return limit to .01 in the cashier's properties
file.

Possible issue when migrating Office to a new system?
About a week ago, my office received two brand new Quad-core MacPros. Gorgeous pieces of machinery. I, being one of the only ones in our office with any sort of professional Mac IT background (mainly just setting up new machines for users and transferring their old files to their new computer through a backup server) my boss allowed me to set up her new computer. This is when the fun began. I successfully partitioned and reinstalled Tiger onto the computer, and installed all the necessary software.

Property Page with CListCtrl Repaint issue
I have a customized Property Sheet/Page custom class that allows me to create a property sheet with "tree menu" pulled from the titles of the property pages and allows me to display the page as you select the tree items. Problem: When the main program no longer has focus and another program is now on top, when returning back to the main program, the current property page is no "repainted." I narrowed it down to pages that contain a CListCtrl control and this control has the FOCUS when the behavior is exhibited. If the control doesn't have the focus, no problem. I a...

Returns Issue pls help!
I have not been able to figure this out and i hope i am overlooking something small. My warehouse staff had done partial receipts of a po and on the last receipt then did it incorrectly. the po only has two line items but on the final packing slip the items had been listed inversley from the po. So this caused the warehouse staff to under recieve one item and over recieve the other but everytime i try to do a return i get an error The quantity returned can't exceed 0. This is the maximum available based on tthe item and receipt number. Please enter a smaller quantity to return....

Strange Outlook issues.....
At a position I am no longer at I kept having the strangest feeling that my supervisor was reading my email (both company and Hotmail), which is fine by me, but then I started getting the feeling that he could see my bank account information, credit card information, etc, which I would check at work, but now I am no longer there, and I still have this eerie feeling that he can still see it. I have tried changing all of my passwords but it does not seem any different. So while I was still there, I decided to go read his account one day because I felt VERY uncomfortable. I happened ...

Color Palette Issue
I have a user that created a few excel documents on their machine, and is embedding them in a power point. The cell fill color palette available to him in one set of cells in this power point are not available to him in another set. I opened excel on his machine, checked the color palette and the color he wants is there, then I copied the cells from powerpoint into that new excel document and the fill color palette available then was completely different, the color he wanted that was JUST there is no longer there/available - what the heck is going on?

TLS issue
Exchange 2003 SP1 We have a spam protection vender (Postini) which requires us to use TLS or will we will have probelms recieving emails. From what I"ve read enabling this in SMTP could cause us to not be able to recieve email. The vendor says "Either disabling TLS transactions on this mailserver or configuring the server to properly accept TLS transactions will allow these messages to be delivered." So would it be better to disable TLS on Exchange 2003 and if so how? Or to properly enable it? If you do not have TLS configured, it is in essence disabled. TLS would requi...

principal vs. interest
When looking at the mortgage payments in money, several of the payments are allocated completely as principal, with no interest, while most are okay. All of these were entered as regular load payments, not as extra payments. The only difference I can think of is that sometimes I enter them from the bill section before they are matched to transactions downloaded from my bank, and sometimes I download the transactions from my bank first and then accept the match to the bill payment. How can I get Money to recalculate these payments that are classified as all principal, so that I have t...

Outlook 2007 issue with Vista

Locale issue with union operator string (,)
The Excel union operator string is different for different locales (e.g. the semicolon ";" in France and the comma "," in the US). I want to read out Excel Ranges using A1-style notation using the union operator, e.g. Excel.Range myRange = get_Range("A1,A2,A3", missing); Thus I have to consider locales when assembling my cell references string. Although when using VSTO 2008 the locale issue should be hidden behind wrapper objects when accessing the COM interface, this doesn't seem to be true when using the union operator inside String cell refe...

OPOS Parallel port issue
I had a working machine with two EPSON printers, TM-T88IIIP and TM- U220BP, both parallel. The motherboard died so I replaced with a spare part. This motherboard is all PCI so I had to go get a new PCI parallel interface card since old motherboard had one ISA card. It does have one built-in port so now I have two parallel as before. The problem starts here as the new PCI card is getting CheckHealth error. I'm running OPOS 2.5 sp 9, latest from epsonexpert.com. LPT1, which is configured as the built-in port works fine with two printers. LPT2, PCI, is getting checkhealth error. I alrea...

Color Scale Issue 2007 to 2003

Importing Quicksell 2000 DB into RMS: data issues
I just installed RMS and imported the Quicksell DB into RMS. RMS installation and data import procedures were successful. My biggest concern is regarding the way in which the data was imported. In Quicksell 2000, most if not all of my db items were created as matrices. In RMS, the data seems to have been recreated as "standard" items? As a result, I now have multiple occurrences of the same Item with different lookup codes. Im not really concerned about the lookup codes, but more so with the way the data was captured. For example: In QS2000, I had a matrix item of ...

How do get rid of formatting characters when reporting Issues from reporting database
Issue description and Issue Resolution because they are rich text (I guess) when reported via SQL Reporting Services contains all kinds of garbage like </div>, &nbsp, etc. What's the best way to strip the special characters out when reporting from the database? Thanks, Andy Novak UNT Hi Andy, you have a couple of options depending on your SQL version. If you run 2008 you can use the REport builder 2.0 which by the way renders the rich text. If you have 2005 you will need to write some code to strip the HTML tags out. Hope that helps -- Marc Soester [MV...

OpenGL transparency issues
Hello! I am programming an OpenGL app using Visual C++ 6.0. I've posted this question on OpenGL.org discussion forums, and no one either knows the answer or is willing to, so I thought I'd post the question here as well. I need to do some partially transparent texture mapping for billboarding. I cannot get this thing to work for the life of me. I have a sample program from a book which runs just FINE. But I can't get my own program to work. I used my debugger to check the bit values of the RGBA-modified BYTE array to make sure the alpha bit is set correctly. When I initia...
