Version 4: Patch 35, 22-MAY-08

Version 4: Patch 35, Released May 22, 2008

This patch has been compressed with the PKZip utility. After downloading, you must decompress it before installing it with the DeltaDOS program.
This patch affects not only programs, but also data files in the SYS and DATA directories. The above link (PATCH35.ZIP) is rather large because it contains all the files updated by this patch. If you would rather download the files for each directory separately (which are smaller), use the links below:
Contains the PATCH35.DPF file which is used by DeltaDOS to update the program files.
Copy this file to the APROGS directory, decompress it and install the Patch35.DPF file with the DeltaDOS program.
Contains sample data files with new help articles and updated data.
Copy this file to the AUSER directory, decompress it and allow it to overwrite the existing files.
Contains system data files such as FR, PL and SCFM files.
Copy this file to the AFILES directory, decompress it and allow it to overwrite the existing files.

This patch contains the following changes:

Main Menu: The latest patch number installed now displays at the top of the main menu.

System Administrator Program 9, Relink Files: The program was doing an unnecessary sort on file 6 of Inventory -- it wasn't hurting anything, just a slight time-waster.

System Administrator Program 11, Modify Reports: Was not saving edited Page Width settings on laser label formats for Windows.

System Administrator Program 11, Modify Reports: When using the Specify option on certain decimal numbers the display would get trashed.

Accounts Payable Program 5, Post Invoices: Would consolidate invoices with matching info but opposite signs. Created odd looking transactions in certain cases, so it will no longer consolidate these.

Payroll Program 15, Calculate Taxes/Deductions: When an employee with a direct deposit account elected to stop the direct deposit, the Calculate program was in some cases not properly recognizing that the direct deposit was no longer active, resulting in overstated amounts on the check. NOTE: This only happend under very specific conditions and only when program 15 was run multiple times for the same check.

Payroll tax tables for Utah and Idaho, which both recently announced changes to their previously announced 2008 tax rates, have been updated.

Payroll Program 2, Deduction Tables: Utah has come up with a uniquely loopy tax table structure for 2008 which required us to add an extra Net Table line to the tax tables. To activate this feature enter "-3" in Deduction 1 or 2 and an extra Net Table will appear in its place on the credits screen.

Inventory programs 10, 28, 35, and 54 have been changed to ignore the new Cost Plus discounts now available in the Windows version.

Inventory Program 81, Item Master Print: Fixed a problem where some label formats did not allow the user to Separate By Warehouse.

Many new formats were added to the Inventory print layout file for Windows. Some formats shared by DOS and Windows were also cleaned up or had additional fields added.

New Feature! Allocations created by Point of Sale, Order Entry and Billing now include the Estimated Ship Date of the item from the invoice/order. When manually entering Allocations in Inventory you can enter an estimated ship date as well. This new feature will allow you to make much better projections of your inventory stocking needs.

Purchase Orders Program 10, Post Items Received: A recent patch enhanced this program to not 'go through the motions' of receiving items when the operator specifies a receiving quantity of zero. However, some users complained that they intentionally receive zero quantity on items to update the current cost in Inventory. So we restored that functionality for the Partial option only, leaving Exception as is.

Purchase Orders Program 53, Purge Expired/Completed: If you selected to only purge expired POs and to purge hold POs the program would also purge completed POs with holds.

Point of Sale Program 3, Start Cash Drawer: Was putting junk in the Printer Number field if you did a lookup there.

Point of Sale Program 51, Estimate to Invoice: Allowed cash estimates to be converted to layaways which should not have been allowed.

Point of Sale Programs 4 & 5, Full & Quick Invoicing: Some cash drawers, or printers that control cash drawers, require that null digits be sent as part of the 'open drawer' command. Point of Sale Full and Quick Invoicing took null codes to mean 'end of instruction' and did not send them, so the drawer would not open. Now both programs send all ten codes specified in program 3, including nulls.

Bank Reconciliation Program 3, Print Reconciliation: The program would accept an invalid Last GL Update Date and then print a report with figures that didn't make sense.

In File Maintenance it thought that one field in the Inventory Audit file was supposed to be right-justified when it wasn't.

Report Generator: A few fields in the AR Customer Master file had incorrect default settings in the Report Generator dictionary.

General Changes:

  • Security setting options have been added for new Windows Inventory programs.

  • Label report formats were all shifted over one character to the right, meaning that fields in labels could not print absolutely flush to the left margin (this has been the case for many years).

  • Changed the procedure for reading records from the database if certain header information in the file was found to be incorrect; will now behave well in spite of the problem, which can now also be repaired by File Fixer.

NOTE: At the same time as this patch was released, updated tax tables for the following states became available:


The Utah changes required a change to the way tables are entered and calculated, so the new Utah tables will not work properly unless you are current as of this patch. The updated ADPRTXTB.DAT file is included with the files downloaded for this patch or click here here to download the most current tax table file.

How To Install Patch 35
This patch is available in one of two forms: either download the PATCH35.ZIP file which contains the program patch as well as the System and Data files, or separately download the files 35PROGS.ZIP, 35SYS,ZIP and 35DATA.ZIP. In either case, these instructions can be followed for loading the patch after downloading the file(s).
The PATCH35.ZIP contains the following files:
The patch file used to update the program files; copy it to the APROGS directory and install with DeltaDOS.
Copy this file to your SYS directory (the AFILES directory) and decompress it, allowing it to overwrite existing files.
Copy this file to your DATA directory (the AUSER directory) and decompress it, allowing it to overwrite existing files.
If you chose to download the ZIP files for each directory separately, copy the 35PROGS.ZIP file to the APROGS directory, decompress it into the PATCH35.DPF file, then use the DeltaDOS program to install the patch.
To apply all the changes in this patch, follow these steps:
  1. As always, before loading any new software, make a backup of your data files.

  2. Decompress PATCH35.ZIP into the APROGS directory, or, if you downloaded separate files, decompress the 35PROGS.ZIP file into the APROGS directory.

  3. Move the 35DATA.ZIP file to the AUSER directory and move the 35SYS.ZIP file to the AFILES directory.

  4. Go to the AUSER directory and decompress the 35DATA.ZIP file, allowing it to overwrite existing files.

  5. Go to the AFILES directory and decompress the 35SYS.ZIP file, allowing it to overwrite existing files.

  6. Go to the APROGS directory and use the DeltaDOS Utility to apply the DPF patch file. Click here for instructions on using DeltaDOS.

  7. This patch adds fields to Inventory which means you'll have to run SA7, Update Data Files on all Inventory companies after installing this patch.

  8. Because the SCFM file for Inventory has changed, you'll need to update your custom SCFM file. (This only applies if you have made modifications to the Inventory module with Screen Builder.) Click here for a discussion of how to update custom SCFM files.
