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 on this update are listed below.
The price files for multiple Munce catalogs are included on this update.
- M-NOV-RN.TXT = Regular sale pricing – November catalog (31-Oct-2016 thru 27-Nov-2016)
- M-NOV-RD.TXT = Regular sale pricing – November catalog (31-Oct-2016 thru 24-Dec-2016)
- M-NOV-CN.TXT = Conservative sale pricing – November catalog (31-Oct-2016 thru 27-Nov-2016)
- M-NOV-CD.TXT = Conservative sale pricing – November catalog (31-Oct-2016 thru 24-Dec-2016)
- M-2DAY-R.TXT = Regular sale pricing – November/December 2 Day Sale (Set dates in IVPROMO)
- M-DEC-R.TXT = Regular sale pricing – December catalog (28-Nov-2016 thru 31-Dec-2016)
If you are sending out one of these Munce catalogs to your customers, you can run "IVPROMO" in BSMGR and enter the appropriate file name. You will need to specify the start and end dates for the 2 Day sales catalog items.
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.
