15. In the Most Profitable Customers report it shows total retail and total profit. In the case of selling to my fiance, I have sold him products at wholesale, so have keyed in a dollar value in the discount field to reduce the invoice back down to the wholesale amount. How does this affect the figures? The Most Profitable Customers report shows me making $27 profit on this sale to my fiance when in fact I made none.
You are correct and the reason why it happens is because the calculations are done based on the Dist Cost and RRP. It doesn’t take the discount into account. To resolve this what you can do is treat this as a wholesale invoice. You can edit the RRP in the invoice to the wholesale price or enter the invoice through the Wholesale Invoice menu option.
16. When entering a new customer from the Enter/Update Invoice screen, it doesn’t allow you to select that newly entered customer unless you go back to the menu tree and select Enter/Update Invoice again.
This is correct as it needs to refresh prior to seeing the new entries.
17. If I make a mistake on an invoice and I happen to not need to key in another one and I exit out, it still retains that record. Is there a way of deleting that invoice record so that I don’t have to remember next time around to use up that invoice number? I deleted the information so that the invoice was empty, but this looks strange and uses an invoice number unecessarily.
The reason you can not delete the whole invoice is for the accounting control. You are correct in that you can go back and unlock the invoice and refill it later. Hopefully you should have more than one like this at a time.
18. Is there the capability of entering old orders in a random date fashion and expecting it to list them in an orderly way? The individual order number it allocates seems to be the priority.
This is correct in the order form view. To see the orders in the date sequence please use the TOTAL PURCHASE BY DATE selection under the ORDERS/REPORTS section.
19. How do you fix the error “Can not find the system.dat file”?
You need to go online to www.acclique.com and select REGISTER YOUR COPY OF ACCLIQUE®. Then you put in your Business Name, Invoice No, Machine Code and the server will generate your unlock. When this happens please read the page as it asks you to save the system.dat file in your ACCLIQUE folder (c:\Program Files\Acclique).
20. In addition to the print out feature already there for invoices, how easy would it be for you to give us the feature on an invoice which we have just made, where we could copy, or preferably send to, which included going to an email recipient?
The E-mail function is currently available. After you have created an invoice choose print invoice and the print report with the preview ticked. Then under file choose export and change the save type as to “RICH TEXT FORMAT” or Print to PDF. This file can be attached to an E-mail and sent to the customer. They can open it in Word.
21. How do I delete rows in my Personal Use Form?
Just a reminder that if you make a mistake when entering data into the Personal Use table please select the grey box on the left hand side of the row (this select the whole row) and then hit delete on your keyboard. This will delete the whole row.
If you want to delete data from a previous date make sure you unlock the form first and follow the instructions above.
22. How do I handle the Noni Juice 4 pack if I want to sell individual bottles?
Please note that after you have order the Noni 4 pack, if you want to sell individual bottles, what you should do is go into OPTIONS, INITIAL SETTINGS, and subtract the purchase from stock by choosing the item and a negative quantity (e.g. If I bought 1 pack then I would put item code 9606 and quantity -1, in the second row I would add item code 1870 and quantity 4). This will put 4 bottles of Noni Juice into stock.
23. How do I delete incorrect Business Expenses?
If you want to delete an item from the Business Expenses Form what you need to do is go to the record you wish to delete and click on the grey bar to the left. It will change to black. Then press the Delete key. It will ask you to confirm the deletion.
24. What is a Null Value Error?
A few people have had trouble with entering their personal use as it has resulted in a NULL VALUE ERROR appearing.
SOLUTION: When entering in your personal use please make sure that you are entering a date prior to the current date.
Once you get the NULL VALUE error the only solution is to E-mail us your accliquedata.mdb file from c:\Program Files\Acclique so that we can fix the problem and send it back. Do not enter any more data till your accliquedata.mdb file has been returned.
25. What do we do at End of Year?
Here are some important end of year procedures to follow when using ACCLIQUE.
A summary of the End of Year Procedures are:
- Enter in all Orders, Invoices, Personal Use, Demonstration Products, and Samples dated up to and including 30 June.
- Print off the Stock On Hand Report on 30 June.
- Print off the Profit and Loss Statement on 30 June.
- Go into the Rollover Year menu option. Press the Rollover Year button.
- Finish entering in any outstanding General Income and Expenses dated up to and including 30 June.
- Once all information from 1 July to 30 June has been entered into Acclique, print off Profit & Loss statement, Stock on Hand report, and other Acclique reports and hand to accountant to complete Tax Return.
You MUST use the Rollover function in Acclique PRIOR to entering in orders and invoices etc. dated 1 July and onwards(refer to Helpfile). This is because the Stock on Hand report is continually updated to reflect what you physically have left on your shelf on any given day.
We also recommend that you print off your Stock on Hand report on 30 June, to ensure you have a paper printout of what is left on your shelf at that date. Ideally, the Stock on Hand report should be printed once you have finished entering in everything relating to 1 July – 30 June and PRIOR to entering in information dated 1 July of the new financial year.
For those of you who are using the Bank Reconciliation Statement function in Acclique once you have completed your bank reconciliation as at 30 June you need to press the “Store balance for this year” button.
