Macola 10 - VBA / Flexibility question

Macola 10 - VBA / Flexibility question

Macola 10 - VBA / Flexibility question

We need to take an excel sheet that has our part number qty and Location in it. We want to create a Transfer with this information. What is the correct process for getting the next document number in macola?

Is this the same process for generating an Order/Invoice Number?

There doesn't seem to be very much information out there regarding flex code or using the subs/functions in macola dlls (if we even can)

Thank you

RE: Macola 10 - VBA / Flexibility question

What version of Macola do you have? Some versions support the API, and some don't. You may or may not own the API license either.

The document number is the imctlfil_sql.next_doc_no. Keep in mind the not only will this field need to be incremented, there are at a minimum 3 more tables that need to be updated. If the item is seral/lot/bin controlled, that number rises to about 10 tables. There are different rules if you are using average cost vs standard cost, etc.

It is not nearly the same as the next order/invoice number.

If you own Wisys, this is 30 minute project and you don't even need know how to program beyond a simple SQL select statement.
