When receiving a purchase order, you can receive not only the item tags for your order, but item tags for all the stock already on hand for items that have had a retail price change (as indicated by their tag “print later” checkbox in inventory). Remember that PO Receive has the ability to establish new retail prices based on a stated reference margin and rounding scheme. Also, some EDI data streams from suppliers contain new retail prices. In all cases, anytime a retail price is changed, the Print Later flag is set.

Printing labels fall into two groups. The first group matches your PO, and the second group applies to your stock on hand (SOH). In both the direct print and the generate item tag file methods, the two groups of labels will generate in a single output but will be separated with a label displaying the message of “SOH”.  This indicates all labels following the SOH label are for your existing stock on hand.

 It is common for the second group to not have labels for every item on a PO. A zero SOH condition, or no price change having occurred, or the Item Tag Required box not being checked, will prevent any PO line from not generating SOH Item tags.

Item tags will impact what is produced. Both Print Item Tags and Generate Item Tag File are functional as soon as the PO is created. If Item Tags are requested BEFORE a PO is received, you will receive Item Tags to match the exact quantity of your order and nothing for current SOH. If you request Item Tags AFTER a PO is received, you will be presented the quantity of Item Tags to match your received quantity PLUS any Item Tags necessary for SOH.

  2. Select the Company tab.

  4. Click Save, and then click Close.
