Posting Parts PAD Inception to Master Inventory

Use the Post Inception To Master Inventory button on the Incept From Parts PAD menu to post the inventory files to the Master Inventory. You should perform a system backup before updating the inventory as a precaution in case an error occurs during the update.

Step 1. Click Setup & Updates on the Parts Inventory main menu.

Step 2. Click Miscellaneous Maintenance on the left side of the System Setup & Updates menu.

Step 4. When the Inventory Inception menu appears, the system prompts you to verify you are in the correct source. You must incept the inventory for each source separately, so verify you are in the correct source. Click OK to acknowledge the message. If you need to change the source, press the F5 key to display the OEM Parts Source list, and click the source you want to select.

Step 5. The Inventory Inception menu appears. Select Incept From A Parts PAD. Remember, you must choose to enter your inventory using only one of the options; you cannot use both of them.

Step 7. The system displays a message reminding you that you should have performed a daily backup before updating the inventory and that all of the other Parts workstations must be out of the system. Click OK to acknowledge the message.

Step 8. The system prompts you to verify you want to update the inventory files. Click OK to run the update (or Cancel to stop the update so you can run your backup if you haven’t already).

Step 9. When the system is finished updating the files, it displays a message indicating you should run a price tape update and check your inventory files. Click OK to acknowledge the message.

The system returns you to the Parts Inventory main menu.
