Has a data problem caused you to doubt the accuracy of the totals in your Inventory Item Sales History file (IM9)? If you’ve recently experienced a data glitch of perhaps you’ve changed your fiscal basis for tracking inventory from a calendar to a new fiscal period. IMFX from DSD Associates will rebuild and correct your totals.
Rebuilding detailed customer sales history is not covered by any of the utilities included with Sage MAS 90 or 200. In the past some consultants have taken to extreme measures to rebuild these files manually for clients.
IMFX rebuilds the following files in all versions of Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200:
- IM9 – I/M Inventory Item Sales History
- IM_13 – I/M Customer Item Sales History
- SO_SalesHistory – S/O Item Sales History
- AR_CustomerSalesHistory – A/R Customer Sales History
IMFX is a rebuild utility designed to rebuild the Inventory Item Sales History and Customer Item Sales History files.
The Warehouse Item Sales History, Customer Item Sales History, SO SalesHistory, and Customer Sales History tables are rebuilt from data in the AR Invoice History Header and AR Invoice History Detail files.
What Are Your Alternatives To This Utility?
You may think that rebuilding your Sage MAS 90 or 200 sort files will resolve situations such like this? It won’t. The sort file rebuild contained within Sage MAS 90 and 200 will rebuild a limited number of totals including items like quantity on Sales Order. It won’t rebuild the detailed history that many people rely upon for their sales reports.
If you’re thinking that you could re-key the data directly into the above data tables or use Visual Integrator – you might be right. But think about the time you’d spend extracting the data, accumulating the totals, checking the math, designing the Visual Integrator import job and suddenly this utility has the potential to be a huge timesaver.
If you’re in a situation where you need to rebuild sales history in any of the above data files then this is the utility for you. DSD Associates is a Master Developer for Sage Software and they’ve been around since before I started working with Sage MAS 90 (1986). Their catalog of enhancements is pretty popular with users – especially their magnetic media.
