Note: Some of the updates may have links to the corrections/enhancements. These updates should only be applied to the current release.

General Updates

2023-10-16 : The duplicate PO check was converted to a SQL call for efficiency.

2023-10-30 : The allocation routine that checks for bins on hold has been enhanced to perform using a single SQL call. In addition, the check will not take place if the allocation options have been set to backorder the quantity.

2023-03-17 : Message added to DDS update in SYSPRO 8 to indicate it is no longer required. A custom data dictionary "CADSFS" was issued starting with the 10/5/2023 release.

2024-04-29 : File handlers compiled with Visual COBOL 8 published on SYSPRO 8 download page for SYSPRO 8 2023.

EDI Solution Updates

2023-11-08 : The Generic Element Processing cross-reference has been expanded and improved to work with any segment for almost any document. For an import it will allow any element of a segment to be stored as either a comment or in a custom form field. This could be done with scripting, but the enhancement allows it to be done without a script. The cross-reference was also extended to outgoing documents. This enhancement allows the retrieval of the CFF information into any outgoing element. As a table change is required, this enhancement is not compatible with any previous releases.

2023-11-09 : New translation option in the DTM cross-reference for "Available to promise". This selection uses the results from the SYSPRO INVQAT business object to discern a date.

2023-11-13 : It is recommended the SYSPRO Hotfix "SYSPRO.8.2022.KB8090703" be installed on SYSPRO 8 2022 systems if scripts are in use. This hotfix reduces the number of SQL calls of an internal SYSPRO program called IMPWSH which faciliates the client-side scripting. For other versions of SYSPRO 8, please contact SYSPRO support. This update is not necessary for SYSPRO 7.

2024-01-11 : Credit checking on imports will properly check credit if a sub-accounts credit checking is turned off, but the master accounts is enabled. Credit checking is done based on the master account.

2024-01-13 : The old SorControl record does not exist in a brand new SYSPRO 8 2023 database and the EDI programs will present an error that the sales order control record does not exist. The check for this record has been removed for SYSPRO 8 2023. A temporary fix can be done by creating a "CTL" record in SorControl.

2024-01-16 : The routine to ascertain cumes information from the inventory movements file was rewritten to use a newer SYSPRO SQL interface. In some systems under SYSPRO 8 the ODBC access has changed which causes the older methods to not work and return an error that the InvMovements table is an invalid object.

2023-02-07 : Upgraded internal routines to recognize the warehouse custom form fields.

2024-02-13 : Scripting Updates - Tutorial has been updated with the enhancements and changes. 1) 64 bit interface to scripting introduced. This will allow scripting on the server in SYSPRO 8. 2) Scripts can be written in Javascript in addition to Visual Basic. 3) Include files - You can have a script (or scripts) with all your boilerplate and include it in the main script. 4) Global functions - If you use the same defined function all the time you can set one up and it will call it and the regular function also. 5) The validate button should work from the clients on SYSPRO 8.

2024-02-14 : The invoice exports (810, 880, 894) have been enhanced to allow the creation of the invoice (no document printing) after exporting.
