Corrections to Existing Features
1
A number of corrections have been made to ensure that sales quotes and orders are loaded correctly in all circumstances including the following:
Orders are in non-US English.
Special characters are used in input fields.
Optional pop-ups are enabled such as adding items to the installed base.
Comments are added to the order before loading into MFG/PRO.
A new address is created and optional pop-ups such as time zone and self-billing are enabled in Customer Address Maintenance.
2
An error has been corrected that prevented e-mail from being sent even though the e-mail server was properly set up.
3
When a record is modified from a page in a browse, the browse now redisplays the same page. Previously, the browse displayed page 1, even though the modified record was accessed from a different page.
4
When menus are generated, you can reorder menus as needed. However, Customer Selection must always be the last item on the menu listing or the generation fails. A message now displays the specific cause of this error.
5
Prices on the Invoice History Report now correctly display in the currency associated with the customer generating the report when the customer’s currency is not the base currency.
6
The display font used for country and county in shipping and address fields is now the same.
7
The copyright year has been updated to reflect the current year.
8
A B2C user will now receive an e-mail with a temporary password when they provide the correct answer to the secret question. Previously, this feature only worked for B2B users.
9
The customer lookup in User Maintenance now displays only customers defined in QAD CSS.
10
The length of the phone number field on the Address Setup screen is now limited to 16 characters to conform to the acceptable length in MFG/PRO.
11
Performance of CIM has been improved.
12
When freight terms are associated with the default customer in MFG/PRO, new customers created based on the default now inherit the default freight terms.
13
An error in the menu system that prevented a page from displaying during Order Entry 3 has been corrected.
14
A Javascript error that could display in Detail Menu Button Maintenance when the button order was changed has been corrected.
15
The active link for UPS in QAD CSS shipping documents has been corrected to point to the correct URL.
16
When the item number search function is invoked on the Order Entry 1 page, the system now returns the correct value even if a space is added to the end of the item number.
17
You can now include a space in the list of valid credit card types in Credit Card Vendor Maintenance. Previously, if you used a space to separate values, they would not display on the Online Processing page during order processing.
18
Performance in lookups has been enhanced.
19
Search behavior in most maintenance functions has been corrected. Blank search now behaves as expected and returns all records.
20
Display issues that occurred when a B2C user logged in to a B2B environment and vice versa have been fixed.
21
Selecting an item from the lookup on the To Item field in Order By Item Report now works correctly.
22
The User Master Report now works properly when the Show Customers option is selected and a large number of user records exist.
23
The system now correctly assigns a number to an order created in QAD CSS when Sales Order Control (7.1.24) is temporarily locked in MFG/PRO. This situation happens only when the system has been set up to derive numbers from MFG/PRO (UseERPOrderNumber is Yes in QAD CSS system registry).
24
When you disable the ShowExtendedPrices registry settings, prices are now properly suppressed in the shopping cart from Order Entry 2.
25
When Address Verification is enabled in Credit Card Vendor Maintenance, the AVS data is properly sent to MFG/PRO and stored with the transaction.
26
When a customer orders an item in QAD CSS and no available inventory is found at the customer site, the system will now locate inventory at the item master site and successfully create a quote.
27
When a customer has unique bill-to and ship-to addresses defined in MFG/PRO, the proper ship-to address now displays on the confirmation screen during order entry.
28
A problem that occurred when you attempted to add a new contact cross-reference in Administration Menu|Contact Cross-Reference has been fixed
29
The length of the item number field displayed when an e-mail confirmation is sent for an order (E-mail event EX001) has been increased from 8 characters to 18, to correspond to the maximum item number length in MFG/PRO. In addition, a problem sending this event in an MFG/PRO eB2.1 environment because of a missing domain value has been corrected.
30
A fully shipped and invoiced order now always displays with a blank status when viewed by a customer in QAD CSS. Previously, if the order was on hold (action status of HD), the status field was not cleared even after the order fully shipped.
31
An internal error that generated a message about a missing program in the Web server log file has been corrected.
32
A problem related to the default country that occurred when editing bill-to and ship-to customers in the Address Book page has been corrected.
33
A problem that prevented a user from generating output using the Uncommitted Orders Report or Order Archive Report has been corrected.
34
A problem with assigning a data source to a new user that already is associated with a customer in User Maintenance has been fixed.
35
A number of problems related to pricing items in QAD CSS when discount price lists apply have been fixed.
36
A problem displaying currency amounts for prices in the catalog when the currency format is not American has been corrected.
37
An issue submitting orders that include comments added on the Finish Order screen when Trade Management is being used has been corrected.
38
A number of minor format corrections have been made to the System Registry Report.
39
A problem that could occur during extraction of data for Customer Load when a range of customer IDs was specified has been corrected.
40
The Update Ship-To field has been removed as an option in Order Control Maintenance. The integration between MFG/PRO and QAD CSS does not support modification of ship-to address data stored in MFG/PRO, only creation of new records. A number of other problems that could occur when the ship-to address was changed on an order during order-entry have been corrected.
41
When data fails to load into MFG/PRO, selected users are now properly notified by e-mail so that they can take corrective action.
42
In previous versions of QAD CSS, if you changed the ship-to address on an order to a non-taxable address and the original ship-to was taxable, the order quote was not regenerated. This could lead to misleading order totals. QAD CSS now regenerates the quote when the ship-to address is changed.
43
The e-mail message generated by the system when a user logs in and event EX031 is enabled now includes the user name, rather than the user ID.
44
This release ensures that taxes are calculated correctly when the integrated MFG/PRO system is using Quantum’s Vertex tax system.
45
Non-standard submit behavior has been corrected in the Customer Credit Report.
46
This release fixes a problem that occurred loading sales orders into MFG/PRO when Trade Management was installed.
47
This release ensures that the correct ship-to address displays in the e-mail generated by e-mail event EX001 when the ship-to and bill-to addresses are the same.
48
This release fixes a problem with creating new customer associations.
49
QAD CSS pages now display correctly when using Netscape Navigator as the browser.
Additional Notes and Corrections to the Documentation
When defining a credit card vendor in Credit Card Vendor Maintenance, you need to specify the fully qualified path to the directory containing the executable programs required for sending credit card transactions in the Path to a Processing Program directory field. Note that the system assumes the final component of the path is a directory named /bin and appends /bin to the path you enter in this field. This additional note will be added to the next revision of Implementation Guide: QAD Customer Self Service when the book is republished.
