Program Changes on the July 2018 Update

The monthly update disc you receive from BSMGR for RMS contains a current copy of the Christian Books & More® database, new images, music samples, and program changes. Remember to run IVDC after installing your update to reflect retail prices changes for your store’s inventory items. When that program completes, you can use IVL to print labels with the new prices. For your convenience, the RMS program changes included with this update are listed below.


The following price files for active Munce sales catalogs are included on this update.

  • M-JUL-R.TXT = Back to Basics Catalog
    (2-Jul-2018 thru 28-Jul-2018)
  • M-JUL-RF.TXT = Back to Basics Catalog
    (Flexible dates – set when running IVPROMO)

If you are sending one of these Munce catalogs to your customers, you can run "IVPROMO" in BSMGR and enter the appropriate file name.

While the files listed above will be included with the update, if you don’t want to wait for the update disc, you can click here to download the current Munce catalog files, then extract all the files into your BOOK folder.

As a reminder, the program will check your inventory file for the following:

  • If you are missing products from the catalog, the program will prompt you to add them, pulling basic information (title, author, retail, etc.) from the Christian Books & More database.
  • Once missing products have been added to your inventory file, the program will set up the following for all the products in the catalog file:
    » Sale price; » Sale start date; » Sale end date; » Promo code.

Munce 2018 Spring Sale Catalog Flyer/Insert

NOTE: If you did not send the Munce 2018 Spring Sale Catalog, you can ignore this message.

The files for the 2018 Spring Sale Catalog did not include the products in the flyer/insert.

If you sent out the catalog but have not run IVPROMO to automatically update BSMGR with the promo code, dates, and sale price, you should go ahead and do that.

In order to update the items in the flyer/insert, you will need to process a new “M-MAY-F.TXT” (F for flyer/insert — not for Full) after downloading the current Munce files. The flyer/insert is the same for both the Regular and Conservative catalogs, so there is only one flyer/insert file.

  1. Download the Zipped catalog file by clicking here.
  2. Extract the files from the Zip you just downloaded into your BOOK folder.
  3. In BSMGR, run “IVPROMO” at the Enter Program Name prompt.
  4. At the “Enter File Name” prompt, type in M-MAY-F.TXT, then click the OK button.
  5. Any products that are in the flyer/insert and not in your inventory will open the IVM “Add” screen. Add the missing product(s) to your inventory. The catalog’s promo code, start date, end date, and sale price will be set for all the products in the flyer/insert.

Please note that the M-MAY-R.TXT and M-MAY-C.TXT in the Zip file are the same as was sent out on the March update. If you haven’t already run IVPROMO with the appropriate catalog file, you will still need to run IVPROMO for M-MAY-R.TXT or M-MAY-C.TXT as well as the new M-MAY-F.TXT file.

Also, it doesn’t matter which order you process the files. You can process the M-MAY-F.TXT file first or last.

If you have any problems downloading the file or getting the file to process from within IVPROMO, please let us know.
