Explanatory Notes

What changed?


It appears as though the initial code template used to create the database to object interface

had an embedded CloseDatabaseConnection which has now been removed.

Why is this an issue?


It is generally not an issue - however it uncovered some problems - each close of the database commits transactions which in turn can effect some higher level actions with a fail state creating the OnHold issues we currently experience.

More importantly it adds an overhead to SQL Server and Access especially when connecting over a network.

Has this improved performance?


Yes - for example a 150 line sale was taking 10 seconds to load now takes 3 seconds to load - generally picking is twice as fast versions.

This change also reduces the load on the Sql Server and system wide performance should be improved as less connections are being established and destroyed.

Generally we can expect a 10-25% overall performance improvement.

  • Combine Orders fails when retain Cancelled Orders is selected - issue fixed now performs correctly. Note removed combined orders are not considered CANCELLED.

Release - 1.7.154

  • Merged ICXE Pick Engine updates to optimise the Release Order (UNPICK) now 3 - 4 times faster on average.

  • Replicator now reads BOM Purchase Quote description to allow line-by-line BOM descriptions.

  • PriceLevel with all ZEROs in first quantity break column ignored - now forces a replication of first break column and checks for $0.

  • Replicator was not removing deactivated pricelevel records for modified or deleted pricelevels - now removes all unmatched records.

  • Corrected Import STF issue for Lot 0 stock groups - this was returning Lot 1 Quantity then corrupting Difference Calculation.

  • Modified Stock CHECKOUT to skip the UNPICK of each line item if the quantity is unchanged. Optimises CheckOut Pick performance.

  • Added Operator User ID to SAL_OperatorCardID.

  • ReStock or Replenishment Report Views.

Added new View vDBQ_DefaultBinQuantity and vOBQ_OverflowBinQuantity

These two new views are for use with reporting and summarise Quantity in the DEFAULT(PICK) and OVERFLOW(BULK) bins and returns a single record per location to indicate the current Quantity in the BIN and the MIN/MAX quantity required for the Bin.

  • Schema Manager Update



Release - 1.7.153

  • Added new switch /IMPORT_SALES to trigger autoimport of XML SaleOrders

Workflow Restrictions

  • The new commandline switch is /IMPORT_SALES and will trigger a UI-less version of the FILE-IMPORT-REMOTE SALES option.

  • Default location MUST BE set in the SUPERUSER profile as this is normally updated via the UI.

  • Auto Pick MUST BE set in the SUPERUSER profile so imported orders can be auto fulfilled.

  • Ensure the scheduled task does not coincide with other background imports - datapulls should be ok.

  • It is recommended that frequency is kept to a minimum and does not overlap any ftp downloads - this avoids processing of partially imported files.

  • As a rule every hour should be reasonable - while anything less than 5 minutes should be avoided unless reviewed by Datapel first.

Deployment/Update Notes


The core control used to create barcodes has been upgraded to the latest version to address some print and control failure cases.

Preliminary testing indicates that the error checking and validating of barcode format has been tightened up - therefore some existing forms may fail and require adjusting or more importantly correcting for existing issues.

Labels.xml --- IMPORTANT!

The new version of the control has caused as change in the EAN13 code stored within the labels xml and requires the wizard to be stepped thru and the label updated otherwise a message similar to : UPC-E must start with 0 (zero) is displayed.
