When MRP runs the correct warehouses are on the job material tab. If we create a job manually and the part backflush flag is set, the primary warehouse is never selected. The job does not allow you to change this field unless you remove the backflush flag. We do not have any backflush warehouses or bins defined on our resource groups. Is there a way to force Epicor to always use the Primary warehouse and bin?
Hi all,We’re getting this error: “String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.” when trying to generate tags for a specific day’s cycle count. It causes the process to fail, so no tags are generated.We had the same issue with a single count for a different warehouse last year. We investigated everything we could think of, part descriptions, lot numbers, etc etc but couldn’t find anything that was causing it. We were about to cancel the whole count cycle when the error literally just vanished one day, tag generation suddenly worked. We investigated further but couldn’t find anything that had been changed, so we had to leave it hoping it was a one-off. Now it’s back.Has anyone else experienced this? Can anyone point me to what the likely culprit is that’s causing the error?Thanks,Matthew
HelloE 9.05 progress db for E9. We have a Crystal report running against a sql 2005 DB on server 2019. This is legacy data from our old green screen program. The report is pointing to the correct DB, runs fine as an admin user but when run as a regular user in E9 it inputs the default sysprogress user/password in the report login credentials. This is with the login credentials hard coded into the ODBC. Its as if E9 is ignoring what is in the report and the ODBC and defaulting to the sysprogess info. Granted a specific user read/view access to the db and all tables.Am i missing something?
We are considering an upgrade to the latest version E10. but feel rather paralysed by the perceived enormity of the task. mainly as we have a lot of customizations, with poor documentation on them, so feel the conversion and testing effort could be big for that. see below Most of the BPMs have ABL codeWe are unsure what customisations are still needed or made redundant by new functionality in E10, so may need to go through quite a big analysis effort to work that out.So my questionsCompared to other people who have upgraded is the number of customisations normal? How feasible would it be to consider this a more of a reimplementation and just convert the data and then work out where we need to customise and reimplementThanks everyone
All - we went live in In Oct 2020. We are a multi-tenant cloud customer. We are evaluating Prop65 and how the other companies are handling it in Epicor. We are getting ready with Epicor Label as well ( after receiving to stock label would be generated). Right now everything is on the table - like the flag on job traveler to inform Production about extra-label, adding Prop65 warning as a footnote on the label for products shipping to CA or doing nothing thru Epicor ( old school track the orders and apply the pre-printed label - not an effective/automated option though).How is anyone here are dealing with Prop65 in Epicor? Open to all ideas/discussions/approach.ThanksPradeep
Hello,We are running 10.2.500.15 and the Engineering Workbench is very slow. I am updating a BOM by changing the quantity/per on components and every time we update the qty the system pauses to think for 10-20 seconds before registering the change.This is on a new ECO group with only one BOM checked out at the time. Has anyone else experienced this or know what is causing it? Much appreciated!
For credit card customers we follow the industry standard of authorizing the card at placement of order and then Epicor will process the Delayed Capture at the time of shipping (which allows for reasonable amount changes for added freight and taxes). Our problem comes when the time between order placement and shipment extends -- especially beyond 30 days. Authorizations expire at different times per the bank who issued the card. How have others handled this issue?
When we run the GRNI report we get some apparently random records that have no GL Account displayed on the report. The transactions appear to be be being posted correctly when cross referenced to the Inventory/WIP transaction report.Example of the GRNI with random empty GL is below:Has anyone seen this before and/or have ideas on how to fix? Thanks,Brian.
Hi,How does Epicor handle the cost method for Serial Number tracked items?In general we use FIFO costing method - we have several serial number tracked parts and if possible on these SN parts we would like the cost fixed to that individual serial number.I can’t see an option in Epicor to do this and wonder if anyone has a solusion. I thought a possible option is to use LOT FIFO cost method along with SN tracking & create a new LOT number for each individual inventory transaction. - However this creates an additional processes and complications. Thank you
Does anyone have a better solution than backflushing labor or having it split the labor evenly when starting multiple activities at once? We run a machine shop and have operators that will have a primary CNC machine that they work on and will have other machines that they will put less time to over the same overall period of time. So the weight of time would be heavier on the primary than a second or third machine that they would just be loading when time permits.
I have a situation where we need to print a “move tag” when an employee does there MES labor entry>End activity. There is a Print Tag button currently but the information my staff wants is not all on the default tag. And they additions are also not on the Data Definition for me to modify the out of the box.So any tips on how create a new, modified tag and either attach it to the current out of the box button or just do a customization and create a new button? My biggest concern at the moment is how to create a new tag with current end activity information (job, op seq, revision, and next op code or location). The goal would be to have the same functionality as the current out of the box tag but with more and better information.Any already documented process, instruction, or examples would be appreciated.Thank you
I would like to create a copy of an environment to give to one of our companies for the staff use to learn as system admins and still have all customizations . The problem that I have is I do not want to give them access to the data from any of the other companies but still allow then to have full access to this test environment all the way down to sql. Can anyone suggest how I can clean the SQL DB of the data but only leave the relevant company. I know the norm would be to give the demo database but it would just confuse them not having seeing their own data
I have created a dashboard that has multiple queries. I have published the ProjectID field from one of the queries and subscribed to it from the other 2. My problem is, I want the user to be able to enter multiple ProjectIDs because some projects are related and they would like to see the information returned for the related projects. When I modify the tracker and add additional ProjectID entry fields, the dashboard doesn’t return anything. As long as I enter one ProjectID it works great, but more than one doesn’t work. I’m guessing it’s evaluating as And instead of Or. Is there any way to make this work?
We’re seeing incorrect Labor Hours LaborDtl.LaborHours (significantly overstated) for some labor records where the Operation’s Labor Entry Method is Quantity only and Std Format is CH Cycles / Hour.We recently began using Cycles per Hour for some operations, we’ve notice that on only two of the operations, and only sometimes, the incorrect LaborHours are posted upon ending activity. We’ve created jobs manually, by MRP, manually add an operation, and see the same incorrect result. We’ve compared the setup/structure/format of the operation on the job that post incorrectly to one that post correctly and haven’t been able to draw a conclusion. We’ve change to the operation that is posting incorrect to Time&Quantity and is posts correctly. Earned Hours always posts correctly. We’ve reviewed this with our Epicor consultant and he says he has seen this before, and thinks it’s possibly something to do with the StdFormat of CH Cycles / Hour. Has anyone seen this phenomenon, and can yo
I have a costing question, as I am not totally understanding how Epicor does the costing in/with transactions.I have a part that on one date/transaction, it shows a STK-CUS transaction with typical unit costs. The next transactions performed are ones moving parts to Inspection, and then through DMR as we scrapped some parts of the job. The ASM-INS transactions are recording at no cost, but then the DMR transactions moving them to scrap all of a sudden has our labor and burden unit costs shooting up. This is a part that typically does not have high costs since it’s a smaller part.I’m trying to find and/or understand how the DMR process is recording these transactions at a much higher cost. Is it related to the resource/operation that these parts were scrapped off of?Attached is a snapshot of these transactions. I’ve highlighted the line that shows the lower costs, and then the line that these costs are increased.We just scrapped more of these parts off the same job, only now the m
In our process to upgrading to E10 we are having multiple new license files to add modules. I can’t import one I received today. It says it already is in the Mocon, Inc. installation. But the items to enable are not available and in a couple cases are “enabled” but not “Licensed”. I’ve done E10 license updates many time (in 10.0) and was wondering if the process changed for 10.2.600? Any suggestions?
Our issue occurs when using the Mass Receipt function from Receipt Entry. We load a packing slip corresponding to a PO in Mass Receipt, then Select All, Get All, and Receive All. Then when we click Set All To Locations, the grid clears the default warehouse and bin number for all parts with PUR-MTL transaction type, requiring them to be manually re-entered before the form can be processed. How to we stop the default warehouse and bin from vanishing for this trans type? Thanks!
New UD fields successfully added to VendPart and QuoteMtl table. But how do we transfer the data from these UD fields in VendPart into the QuoteMtl table - at the same time the price break and leadtime etc information is captured on pressing the Refresh button?We have checked in Column Map Maintenance but cannot find a table map ID for these tables and I read on this forum that if they are missing need to write a BPM…So after following the embedded learning examples …have found out that the method is RefreshMtlPriceBreak in QuoteAsmIml.. and have added a simple message to confirm we had found the correct place 😊However cannot see how to transfer the data as only the QuoteMtl table is showing !!! Please advice if BPM is correct approach and then how to do this we are now stuck..many thanksNew Epicor Developers
