   that each store is assigning a different minimum and maximum sku

   number range as entered in the major class code screens.

   yet reduce the inventory levels - it's just a preparatory list.

        to be transferred.

4.   When you are ready to transfer the merchandise, put the transfer list

   on a diskette. This step DOES reduce the inventory levels.

   a.   From the Inter-Store Transfer Menu, choose Create a Transfer

        File to Send to Another Store.

   b.   Pick the correct transfer list.

   c.   Insert a diskette into the floppy disk drive when asked to create

        the file.

        choosing the View a Transfer File option.

   e.   Include the diskette along with the transferred merchandise.


5.   When the other store receives the merchandise and the transfer

   diskette. This increases the remote store inventory levels. Note that

   the merchandise retains the original sku numbers assigned by the

   sending store.

   b.   Optionally, you can print a list of the items on the diskette by
