RMS Version 8.02G and 8.10B Program Changes on the August 2016 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.


The price files for Munce’s “Fall Into Savings” (September) catalog (M-SEP-R.TXT) and their August catalog (M-AUG-R.TXT) are included on this update. If you are sending out a Munce catalog or postcard to your customers, you can run “IVPROMO” in BSMGR and enter the appropriate file name. 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 from the Christian Books & More database.
  • Once missing products have been added to your inventory file, the program will set up the following:
    » Sale price; » Sale start date; » Sale end date; » Promo code.

Replay Links for the August 2016 Users Meeting Webinar

We were blessed by everyone that was able to join us for the users meeting webinar we had on Tuesday.

We apologize for the hiccup at the beginning of the meeting. Shortly after starting the meeting, the browser window crashed which “ended” the meeting. Apparently, you cannot restart a completed webinar. We started a new webinar, but the automatic follow-up email the system sent points to the session that died.

Whether or not you registered to view/participate in the webinar, you can watch the replay at your leisure. We’ve included a “table of contents” with links to jump to the specific topic in case you had to leave early and want to see just the part you missed, or if you want to revisit a specific topic.

Thank you again to everyone that was part of the meeting this week, and THANK YOU for the difference each of you is making in your local community!
