The Promotional Pricing list is used to add new and edit/view existing promos.


By default, the Promotional Pricing list displays only promotions that are current, as the Promo > criteria is set to today's date.


promo list header


The list is also useful for finding what stock is currently on promotions and what promotions are available to customers, what are coming up, and which vendors currently have promotions on offer. For example, by entering a stock code and clicking Run, all promotions related to that stock will be displayed. By changing the date filters, easily see when that stock was last on promotion, etc.

Some letters in the field names within the header are underlined, eg. Vend#. Using Alt+ the underlined letter will jump to the field beside that heading.


The Promotional Pricing list header fields are explained below:

Stock Group

On the right-hand side of the Stock Group selection within the list is the word OR. Clicking this wording will change it to &. This relates to how to use groups within the search. To be able to select two groups and find things that are in both groups, use the & option. To search two groups and find anything that is in either one of those groups, use the OR option. Double clicking on the words Card Grp at the beginning of the Card Grp field will turn the field green to indicate that group selection is inverted. For example, select cards that are not in these groups.


Using the above information, Jim2 produces a list in a format that can be sorted by dragging the column header to the top of the list results table. To view or edit any of the promotions within the list, double click or use the F2 function key on any of the fields relating to the promotion to be displayed.
