Preparing sales data for LGI Networks
1) in Jewelry Shopkeeper Pro choose 8, 8 for Store Information Defaults.
At the BOTTOM of the 2nd page, in the Miscellaneous Settings box
add the keyword: LGISALES
(there may be other words in there - ADD this keyword to whatever else is
in there. Before or after is fine but separate with a space.)
2) The next end of month, run the month-end steps as normal. When Done, look
in the JSREPORT folder which is on the Windows Desktop. There will be files
called: something like AUG06INV.TXT and AUG06SAL.TXT (AUG06 varying each
month and year)
3) Send those files to LGI Network as per their instructions. Below are some tips
but for any specifics you'll want to verify with LGI. e.g.
contact Joe Campagnolo at firstname.lastname@example.org or your usual rep there.
*) Rename these files to whatever name that LGISALES company wants them
named (something like "YOURSTOREINVENTORY.TXT etc)
*) Create a DESKTOP shortcut to the LGI network. To do this, in Internet
Explorer (substituting your case-sensitive username and password from LGI)
In the address bar, type:
If that pulls up your folder, the right beside the address bar, drag the
Bookmark icon to your desktop for easy access next time
*) Drag the "YOURSTOREINV.TXT and YOURSTORE.SAL.TXT" file from JSREPORT to
the LGI folder.
*) You'd need to repeat steps 3 4 & 6 (but not 5) each month
*) You could make the sending of the files easier and quicker with a better
FTP program. One shareware example is FileZilla which you could search
on Google or ask LGI if they have a preferred FTP program.
