Stock Batch Update

Datafile Software

Stock Batch Update

The purpose of this application is to update the stock control system with transactions generated elsewhere. These transactions may have been created by a special ProFiler order processing application, for example, or might be the output of a non-Datafile Software application.The benefit to the user is that the proper linking and controls are maintained by these utility applications, and thus transactions do not have to be re-entered manually.

The input transaction files may either be Datafile database files (created by a ProFiler application, say) or "ASCII” text files (such as comma-separated files created by other data base systems or data files downloaded from an electronic point of sale device).

On selection of the Stock Batch Update menu you are given the list of options available within that menu.

Application Menu Parameters (Premier only)

Each batch update menu option has a four digit parameter number. This number is the parameter which is needed for Datafile Premier Users who wish to restructure their applications, and even to define completely new menus. For example System Status has a parameter of "2000”, and the first update definition can be loaded directly by a parameter of "1001".
