Munce 2014 2Day Sale

Munce 2Day Sale Promo File

If you are not using Munce catalogs, please disregard this email.

Starting last year, Munce began allowing stores to choose the dates of the annual 2Day sale for November/December 2014.

You need to download the Munce data files by clicking here. This is a self-extracting Zip file that will extract to D:\BOOK. If BSMGR is installed on a different drive, you will need to update the location to match your configuration.

Once the file is downloaded and extracted, you need to run IVPROMO in BSMGR and enter “M-2DAY-R.TXT” for the file name. You should get a window that allows you to enter the “Sale Start Date” and “Sale End Date”. As indicated on the screen, please enter the dates as month, day and year (MMDDYY).

If you have any problems or questions, please let us know.

November 2014 Update Program Changes

RMS Version 8.00G Program Changes on the November 2014 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.


As a reminder, each month’s update disc also includes a folder titled “Manual” that contains the current RMS manual. The file is in Microsoft Word format, and there is a free Word viewer program in the folder in case you don’t have a copy of Microsoft Word installed on your computer. For your convenience, the RMS program changes on this update are listed below.

• WHEN YOU VIEW ITEM DETAILS ON AN ORDER, IF THE ITEM HAS A SPECIAL ORDER TIED TO THE PO, YOU CAN CLICK THE “?” BUTTON TO VIEW THE LIST OF SPECIAL ORDERS TIED TO THE PO. THE LIST OVERLAPPED THE BUTTONS BENEATH IT.
