Transation sequence number issue



Happy new year everybody!!

I have a customer with this situation. his invoice must be sequentially he
can't skip a transaction number for his invoices, when a transaction is
aborted a number is skiped. i konw that one is not hard to fix but this is
the main issue when he do a return he need to have a differnt count numbers
than the transactions number for example when he sale something the
transation number 1545 is generated but is he return or do a store credit
the transaction number is 145 without affectin the secuence os the sale
transaction number. can be done?

the other problem is this when a recipt is generated and is more than 1 page
he need the sub total at the end of each page with the tax amount of the
item on the page

The transaction numbering thing is not possible. You could add a
transaction comment to each transaction with the sequence number you want,
but the TransactionNumber is an identity and it is going to keep behaving
the way you have described - returns come out of the same pool as sales.
Workorders, Layaways and Quotes do come from a different table, but you
can't change the sequence just for returns...

You could crete an add-in that would automatically add a transaction comment
from whatever pool you want, but these would never match up to the
transactionNumbers within RMS and you would have to do a lot of work to be
able to search by your cuwstom numbering system.

I don't believe that you will be able to do a page total for receipts within
the RMS Receipt system, but you could write your own receipt printing
add-in. I don't know of any existing add-ins that might offer this type of
functionality, but you might want to try New West
( - I know they have an add-in that allows you to
print a captured signature on a receipt, which would be hard to do in the
RMS receipt format as well, so maybe they have already built an alternative.
