I am a new user and am trying to determine how to handle what I call “kits”. My definition of “kits” is best illustrated by using a furniture store example. You can buy a table, several chairs, and maybe a hutch as individual items, or, you can purchase all the pieces as a “dining room suite”. Usually there is one price for buying the whole group - and it is usually less money than if you bought all pieces individually. The Sales Order/Invoice would show a line defining the “suite” with the price. Then there would be individual lines shown for each of the components - table, chairs, hutch with no pricing on the individual lines. This is very common in the furniture industry and a lot of software packages handle this very well. My company sells grass seed - usually by the bag. Sometimes we blend several bags of different varieties together to create a “custom blend”. For example, let’s say we are blending 4 different seed varities together to create 8 bags of blended seed. To keep it simple, let’s say we are using equal parts - therefore we are 2 bags of variety as input to create the 8 bags of blended product. We also negotiate a special price for doing. We want the Sales Order/Invoice to show only that special price. The first line should be for the “blended item” and show the price. The next 4 lines should simply list each of the components (2 bags each) that went into the blend. My example is similar to the furniture store selling the suite - at least I think it is. Does anyone know how I might accomplish this. Is there an Add-on granule available to do this. Thanks for any help.
Please don’t cross post. Most members here read all forums, so you really only need one of them. See the other forum for a suggestion.
Sorry, it was because I’m a “newbie” - I understand now and will post accrdingly. Thanks for help.
Gary, can you please delete this post.
Sorry, but I don’t know how to delete this post. If you can tell me how I’ll gladly delete it. I’ll learn, I’ll learn
Hmm odd, the delete topc icon seems not to be there anymore. I guess you need a moderator…
Hi Gary At the top of each of your postings a series of icons exist, the penultimate one is has a trash can indicating you can delete the posting, if you delete the first posting it should delete all of these replies. David are you saying you cannot see the trash can on your posting? If so this may also be the same with Gary. As a moderator I can delete postings of my own (like this one) and ones in the forums where I am moderator (not this forum [:D]). Hopefully this topic will now disappear, otherwise we may have to post something in the Report errors with THIS WEBSITE forum, or perhaps David we should just post it in the developer forum [;)]
I cannot see the trash can!
Looks like we’ll have to report it then! See http://www.mbsonline.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14910
