Work order to Purchase Order

We've just implemented RMS 1.2 at our store. I noticed 
that RMS can automatically place appropriate purchase 
orders for items sold within a specified time period. Is 
there a way for items on a work-order that are out of 
stock or soon to be below acceptable quantities to be 
added to the counts in the purchase orders without manual

Hi Greg, 

I'm editor of the Microsoft Business Solutions Community site 
( and we're having a Microsoft 
developer from the RMS team answer questions like yours on ITEMS this week. 
We'll post the answers to the site the week of 9/8 (though if you like, I can 
fwd the answer to you sooner). 

Would you like me to pass your question on to Jimmy Wong, the MSFT developer 
doing this Q&A? I should have his answer by Tuesday. 

Let me know. You can also write me at the e-mail addresses below.

Payment Calculator not working correctly
Recently I tried to program an Excel spreadsheet to calculate a mortgage Payment using the =PMT(Rate/12,Term,Loan Amount)*-1 formula that I have used on many other spreadsheets. These older spreadsheets all work properly, but they were all written on another computer and imported into the one I am now using. The formula “=PMT(10/12, 360,100000)*-1” should give me a payment of $877.57, but it gives me $83,333.33 instead! Is their a flaw in the newer Excel versions, or a patch I don’t have?

Changing the order of page numbers
Example: On a 10 page doc. you want the first 5 pages to be numbered '1' to '5' then the next 5 pages to be numbered '14' to '18' Is there a way of changing page numbers like the above example? Thanks! Ben Ben Don't understand why you want to do this but the best way is to record a macro while you do it manually. 1. print pages 1 to 5 2. go into page setup and change the first page from auto to the value 9 3. print pages 6 to 10. The page count should start at 14. 4 go into page set up and change the first page back to auto. you'll get so...

TRACE macro not working.

Order Entry Form
I have a form with a subform. The subform only asks for product and quantity. First time through this form works great. Second entry skips the product code and goes directly to quantity.

Package purchases
Hi - I'm VERY new to GP and am wondering how to set up inventory to accomodate the purchase of "packages". For example, package XYZ has 8 phones, 1 memory card and 1 controller unit. This "package" can then be sold as-is or we may only sell 6 phones (along with the memory and controller) and later sell the 2 extra phones to a different customer. So my question is: How do I set up this "package" item in inventory in such a way that I am able to break it apart when I go to sell it and yet purchase/receive it as 1 unit? We get a big discount when we bu...

Just installed Office 2008, but word doesn't work
All the other office programs work, but Word will not open successfully. It says it encountered a problem and needs to close. What should I do? Start by following this procedure carefully: When you installed Word 2008, it imported some settings from Word 2004, and I wish it hadn't, because that's what is causing this problem. Please: 1) Quit all Microsoft applications. 2) Track down all instances of pre-2008 Normal template on your computer, and drag them to your desktop.

WLM Beta
Using WLM latest beta. I had been using messages sorted by conversation but as many are being "lost" through jumping to lower view I reverted to sort by "From". Now my incoming messages are all over the place with respect to date. No matter whether I select descending or ascending there are some messages that should be at either end but are seen in the middle of the list or elsewhere. Perhaps I am misunderstanding the "From" sort. Is it From by date order or something else? There does not seem to be a way of just sorting by "date&qu...

negative qty on order
I was a few $ short of a minimum order on a PO. The supplier added 1 more case pack of an item to meet the minimum. When I received against my PO, I received 18, and the order qty was 12. Now when I run and qty reports, it shows -6 on order for this item. When I look at the item itself, it shows 0 on order. I manually reduced the on hand quantities to test if it would be added to a PO based on re-order quantities. That worked fine. How do I get rid of the -6 on order in my reports?
