RMS Version 8.11K Program Changes on the 3rd Quarter 2021 Update

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

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.

Remember you can download the current Munce catalog price files by clicking the link below and extract the files into your BOOK folder. https://updates.bsmgr.com/MunceCatalog.zip

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.

Enhancements and Changes for 8.11

CONVARHI • Fixed A/R invoice history not converting to version 9.0 when the file had junk.
IVO • The dropship screen displayed the wrong screen when changing vendors.
RACCOON • Changed from GoDaddy hosted location to BSM hosted files.

Please contact us if you experience problems installing your update.

If you are sending the Munce 2021 Back to Basics Catalog, please download and process the data file that will prepare your inventory.

  1. Get the current Munce catalog files….
    • Version 8.11 (and earlier) – You can download the Zipped catalog data files by clicking here.

This will download the current database files and new Munce catalog files. (If this feature has not been disabled in SCHEDULE, you should automatically get the files when your weekly cloud update runs tonight.

  6. If IVPROMO doesn’t do anything, make sure you copied/extracted the files from the current MunceCatalog.zip file to your BOOK folder.
