The current release of Apex is version 10.4. This release has not been generally distributed because it targets specific issues. If you have reported any of these issues to me you already have it.
If, however, you would like to evaluate this release to see if you need it here is a list of features:
SQL Server 2005 and 2008 have enhanced security capabilities. Depending on the policy rules used by your domain the password policies may become quite complex. This can affect how Apex advanced security works. With this update you will not have a problem in complex domains with newer versions of SQL Server.
The Receiving Journal will now print the receiver# on the first page of a multi-company receiving journal.
The receiving history database will now show the date that you received the material, not the date that you entered the receiver.
When you update a purchase order line through the business-to-business portal Apex will look up the description for you using the UPC number rather than using the distributor’s description.
Apex now uses a different technique to ensure that P/O line number assignments work correctly in all multi-user environments. Previously there were some odd scenarios where certain kinds of terminal servers could generate conflicting numbers.
Apex is now careful not to send UPC numbers through the “Transmit to Vendor” business-to-business link on your “green” items. An item with a UPC code can turn green if you remove the dbItem after you have entered the line.
If you have scanned documents attached to your purchase order and you use the “Transmit to Vendor” business-to-business link, Apex will warn you that the scanned documents will not be sent. Although we have some designs in place with some vendors for sending scanned documents at this time they have to be handled off line.
P/O Search now asks you if you want results to show header information or line item information. This means that you can, for example, search for P/Os with certain line information without having to report all of the detail.
The Cost Codes by Job report now obtains invoice data to show in the “Invoiced” column, and adds an “Uninvoiced” column.
The user defined line-item field can now be edited properly.
The Apex message library has a filter that makes it easy to find the appropriate message to insert on your P/O.
